The launching of the new novel by Quito Nicolaas Verborgen leegte last Friday 26 november at the Arubahuis was a successful afternoon.

In his speech Quito spoke of the process of writing this novel that took him a few years to complete. Furthermore he stressed the importance to promote young Aruban writers in Holland. The Cabinet could play a part in this he said. He read a fragment of the book, whereafter a copy of the book was presented to the Cabinet of the Plenipotenciary Minister of Aruba mr. Edwin Abath.
Quito’s old primary schoolteacher gave an interesting insight of the author as a young inquisitive boy during his primary school years. Also about his experience teaching young children a foreign language given that everybody spoke only Papiamento.
Finally Irene de Cuba of BookIsh Publishers told about this new publishers house and thanked everybody for a nice afternoon.  Followed by a signing reception with the author.
