Boekhandel van Rossum, 8:00 p.m.
Our former Regional Advisor Laura Watkinson translated Bibi Dumon Tak’s Soldier Bear (original title: Soldaat Wojtek, publ. Querido) for Eerdmans. It went on to win the 2012 Mildred L. Batchelder Award, bestowed by the American Library Association for an outstanding children’s book translated from a foreign language. It also features delightful illustrations by Dutch Illustrator Philip Hopman.
We will be celebrating the award for Soldier Bear with Laura, Bibi, Philip and the book designer Steef Liefting and the Boekhandel van Rossum on June 7th at 8:00 pm. The store will stay open until 9:00 pm and we will move the party to a neighboring café as the merriment is sure to continue.
Refreshments will be served at the bookstore and we ask that you RSVP us at email@example.com to get a general headcount. Look forward to seeing you there!
