Ester Naomi Perquin talks about citybooks in VPRO De Avonden

"Smile because nothing else remains"Ester Naomi Perquin © Roeland Fossen

Last Friday, the Dutch author Ester Naomi Perquin spoke live from Bucharest on the VPRO radio show De Avonden. Perquin is currently completing her residency in Bucharest for citybooks. During the programme Perquin talked about her residency and read the last part of her course ‘Happiness’, which seems to be inspired by her stay in the Romanian capital. Perhaps it gives us a hint about the citybook she is writing in this city? Her citybook will be published early 2012 as a web text, e-book, and podcast on www.city-books.eu.

Curious? Listen to the programme De Avonden (in Dutch) here. Perquin talks from 12:57 until 27:30.

citybooks Bucharest is up and running. The authors are in residency, the website is being updated and the local partners Peter Oostveen from the Asociata Heritage and coordinator Jaap Faber (University of Bucharest) are making sure everything runs smoothly. While waiting for the citybooks texts by authors Anna Luyten, Ester Naomi Perquin, Jaap Faber, Adrian Schiop and Răzvan Radulescu, you can already enjoy the citybooks photos by Christian Binder on www.city-books.eu.
