Introducing New Dutch Writing to UK readers. Launching a newly translated series of collected work by emerging writers, New Dutch Writing aims to engage UK readers with stimulating, cross-cultural debate.

Events taking place in the UK this autumn will feature leading specialists on Dutch culture, such as historian and broadcaster Sir Simon Schama, and Bart van Es, winner of the 2019 Costa Book of the Year award for The Cut Out Girl (Penguin). Authors participating will include Herman Koch, bestselling author of The Dinner (Atlantic), Eva Meijer, author of the novel Bird Cottage (Pushkin Press) and the forthcoming Animal Languages (John Murray), and Tommy Wieringa, whose novel The Death of Murat Idrissi (Scribe), was longlisted for the International Man Booker Prize. These autumn events will take place at the British Library and festivals in Cheltenham, Durham and Aldeburgh.
