I recently returned from a wonderful three weeks in France and The Netherlands.
One of the highlights was visiting the beautiful city of Utrecht (home of Miffy the rabbit) and meeting the fabulous Utrecht City of Literature team, who gave us delicious cake (from the best bakery in Utrecht) as well as some reading recommendations.
I now have the following children's book authors to read: Annie M. G. Schmidt, Dick Bruna and Max Velthuijs.
And I'm keen to check out these fiction writers too: Arthur Japin, Harry Mulisch and Arnon Grunberg.
Dank u wel Utrecht City of Literature!
