Two ways to start the new season in September!
To kick off the new season, B-Unlimited is offering two great events in one week: Friday, 14 September, we welcome writer/journalist Frank Westerman and novelist Mira Feticu for the 'Nacht van de Dictatuur' (Dutch spoken) and on Wednesday, 19 September, American novelist Brad Watson is one of the guests in a debate on Morality, Truth and Fiction in America.
Wednesday, 19 September: Morality, Truth and Fiction in America
Miss Jane by bestselling American author Brad Watson is Southern Gothic at its best. Set in Mississippi at the start of the 19th century, Watson's novel is about a young woman determined to have a normal life despite the fact that she has birth defect preventing her from getting married or having children. Through his protagonist, Watson shines a light on what is considered a "normal" life, making the novel a perfect occasion to discuss the state of American morality. Speaking with both Watson and America expert Markha Valenta, writer and essayist Bas Heijne asks: What are the values of a country where truth and fiction are more and more indistinguishable, and moral boundaries seem to be crossed daily?
