5 09 2012

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.

The idea according to Nicolaas is to stimulate reading of local authors amongst the youth, to discuss them in literary classes and maybe read it for their exams. The schools were very pleased with this gesture by the author.

the RC teachers also rejoiced

At the beginning of the year he donated also a set of books to the OSB in Bonaire.
