To mark the launch of THE DUTCH RIVETER  Riveting new writing from the Netherlands

Over the past decade several Dutch writers have won acclaim in the UK – Herman Koch and Geert Mak among them – but there are many new poets and prose writers ready to burst onto your bookshelves, inspired by the success of Marieke Lucas Rijneveld. Gender, post-colonialism, racism and the future of Europe are hot topics for writers not just in the UK but in the Netherlands too. In this special Dutch edition of The Riveter, you will be able to discover the latest trends in Dutch literature, through extracts, reviews and specially commissioned features.

7-8.30pm, 17th March 2021: The Dutch Riveter launches with a literary cabaret of readings, discussion, live drawing and music in partnership with The British Library.
