The beautiful city of Amsterdam has featured as the setting for many works of literature and it’s perhaps partly in recognition of this that it is currently serving as World Book Capital 2008-2009.
On April 22nd the city’s tenure of this coveted title will come to a close with the culmination of this fantastic year of events, conferences, competitions, public readings and all kinds of other wordy fun.
One key event as the occasion comes to a close is on March 20th: the Night of Books, which will see festivities take place between 19:00 and 01:00 local time, including a fusion between literature and music thanks to some top name DJs and a number of experimental writing events, dealing with themes of expression and censorship.
Bookish visitors on Amsterdam tours should engage themselves in one or more events being held as part of the World Book Capital celebrations as this will surely be something quite unique.
Why not book the North and South Holland tour in advance?
