Seminar by Aleid Truijens

On Tuesday at 15.00hrs, writer-in-residence Aleid Truijens will be talking about her biography of Dutch writer Hella S. Haasse. She will first introduce Hella Haasse to you, by way of a picture gallery (see attachment). Then Aleid will elaborate on the questions and dilemma’s that come with the genre of the biography. How do you deal with family secrets and uncomfortable findings? How do you treat politically sensitive issues?

Please prepare by looking at the pictures, and reading these short English introductions to Hella Haasse’s work:
