Amsterdam literary festival in full swing
The Amsterdam Literary Festival (ALF) is an annual event, held each May, which aims to put the charming Dutch capital on the world literary map – especially in the lead-up to 2008 when Amsterdam is UNESCO World Book Capital. This year’s edition will run from 15-20 May 2007.
Past guests at ALF have included the BBC’s Kate Adie OBE, award-winning novelist Sarah Waters and one of the UK’s most exciting writers, David Mitchell.
This year’s programme features performances, poetry, lectures and rummages through books at local book markets. And there’s the closing event: World Cuisine Buffet on an old steamship!
