The Frankfurter Buchmesse is in full swing by now. Flanders and the Netherlands are guests of honour at this year’s edition of the world’s most important book fair.
“This is what we share” is the motto through which Flanders and the Netherlands present themselves in Frankfurt. They share a language, a history and a rich literature and culture.
The Flemish-Dutch cultural institution Ons Erfdeel vzw, publisher of The Low Countries Yearbook, is also in Frankfurt. You can come and visit us in Hall 5.0 - stand C76-C77, where you can find all of our publications.
We will officially present the 2016 issue of The Low Countries, which is devoted to Dutch and Flemish literature, in Frankfurt on 20 October 2016, 12 A.M, CB Lowlands Stage – hall 5.0 C88.
The presentation will bring together Flemish writer Tom Lanoye and Dutch political theorist and historian Luuk van Middelaar.
We also present a new website that contains all articles about Flemish and Dutch authors featured in the previous editions of the yearbook. Over 400 texts on the best-known and most interesting writers of Flanders and the Netherlands can be found here: www.literaturefromthelowcountries.eu.
All articles are offered in open access: you can read the full texts for free.
