A literary evening with Lize Spit & Jaap Robben

  • September 27, 2021

We are very proud to present our first post-pandemic live event at Flanders House! 

On 12 October we welcome Flemish bestselling author Lize Spit (The Melting) and award winning Dutch author Jaap Robben (Summer Brother) for a conversation about their dark and unsettling novels about adolescence and coming-of-age. 


Both authors will give short readings from the books and discuss their work with journalist Suzi Feay, a writer for the FT and formerly Literary Editor of the Independent on Sunday. 


There will be opportunities to meet the authors and get books signed after the event.

Please register here


Doors at 6.30pm for a 7pm start
Drinks at 8.30pm, event ends at 9pm


This event is organised in partnership with  New Dutch Writing, supported by Flanders Literature and the Dutch Foundation for Literature. Thanks to Newham Books for providing copies of books for the event.
