Eindhoven gets its own ‘Boekenbal’ (Traditional gala to start the week of books).
On March 10, in the middle of the National Book Week, the first Boekenbal Eindhoven will take place in the Natlab on Strijp S. Eindhoven will follow the national topic Madness or too crazy for words.
Eindhoven Boekenbal is an initiative of the Natlab and bookstore Van Piere. It corresponds to the new book program by author and linguist Wim Daniels; Boekie Nights. After two editions this event turned out to be a huge success.
Writers, publishers, readers and booksellers will be present at the gala. Like at the famous Boekenbal in Amsterdam, as the evening progresses, the dance floor will be open.
The gala will be opened by Alderman Mary Ann Schreurs and Wim Daniels at 22.30 hrs.
