The last literary meeting of the Dutch Caribbean Book Club was a succesful one.
The book people spoke and discussed about this time was our own Verborgen leegte (Hidden Emptiness] by Aruban born, Almere based writer Quito Nicolaas. There were introductions,  a short sketch based on one of the characters in the book and people could talk to the writer.
A dance group entertained the public who were very pleased to attend the afternoon.
BookIsh Plaza was also there with a bookstand of Caribbean books.

BookIsh Publishers will be publishing a new book by the writer in the Papiamento language. The book launch will be May the 21rst in The Hague.
