Former Dutch TV presenter, Sonja Barend, will be a guest in Geldrop at the end of November.
She will join the Literair Café Dommeldal, in Kasteelhoeve. There she will talk about her book, Je ziet me nooit meer terug (You’ll never see me again). In it, she writes about her search for answers.
In the book, Barend tells of how she did not dare ask her mother about her father. She also tells of how her father was taken to Auschwitz in 1942, how her mother remarried, and how she got two brothers and a new father. Her career as a talk show presenter, during which she asked her guests about everything, is also featured in the book.
The meeting will be on Sunday 24 November at 14:00. Tickets cost €11, with those under 18 paying €2,50.
Do you want to attend more writers’ visits? Annual ticket holders pay only €45 for five lectures. These talks will be presented by writers such as Peter Buwalda, Jaap Robben, Saskia de Coster, and Bregje Hofstede. Please visit the Dommeldal Library’s website for more information. Please note, these lectures are in Dutch.
