Aruban poet/writer Quito Nicolaas donates a set of his books to school libraries in Curaçao and Bonaire (Dutch Caribbean).
Last June teachers of the secondary schools MIL and the Radulphus College in Curaçao were very pleased to receive a set of books by the author, like the novel Verborgen Leegte [Hidden Emptiness] and Bos pa Planta [Constructing Voices], among others. The set consists mostly of poetry books, a novel and short stories. They are written in different languages and the native tongue Papiamento.
