On Thursday, October 18th, 2018 The Netherland Club has a special combined TNCBOOK and TNCFILM event; the book presentation of Esther Gerritsen’s roman Craving (NL: Dorst, 2012), followed by the screening of the book’s filming, directed by Saskia Diesing (2018).
Esther Gerritsen is one of the most established, widely read, and highly praised authors in the Netherlands. She was awarded the Frans Kellendonk Prize for her oeuvre in 2014. In 2016, Gerritsen had the honor of writing the Dutch Book Week gift, which had a print-run of 700,000 copies. Her bestseller Craving was praised by Herman Koch as “a gem among recent Dutch literature”. Craving is now finally available to the American reader in English translation. Esther will end her extensive US publicity tour with an event at TNC where she will read a short excerpt of Craving, and answer questions about her work.
Following the book presentation and the signing session, we will screen the film in the presence of Esther Gerritsen. Screening starts apr. 7:45 PM.
