You can meet the author at Onder den Linden in Wageningen on June 18th from 17:30 onwards.

Land of my fathers was originally published in Dutch (Land van de vaders) and has been translated into English. You can download two chapters to join the discussion.

"Land of my Fathers is a fine novel with much to say about colonialism and community, the sense of place and the universal need to belong" (New Internationalist).

Some free copies of the book are available in Forum Library. You are kindly requested to return your copy after reading it. For more information about the book club, click On the same page.
