    Winternachten Book Club

    With: Boekencurator

    "Whose house is this?" American writer Toni Morrison opened her tenth novel, Home, with this question, which has become the theme of the summer edition of the Winternachten Festival in The Hague. The literary festival investigates being at home and feeling at home in society, the city and your body.
    Home is about a traumatized soldier who returns to racist America in the 1950s. The works of Morrison, who won the 1993 Nobel Prize for Literature, investigate the experiences of Americans of colour, especially those of women.

    During this book club, you will dive deeply into this novel together with other readers under the guidance of Corina Maduro (www.boekencurator.nl). The focus is an exploration of the characters and themes. You are free to read the book in English or in Dutch translation; the book club itself is in Dutch. No special knowledge is required to participate, but it is a good idea to mark striking sentences or passages as you read, so that we can look closely at them together.

    • Saturday 18 June, 15:00 - 16:30 hrs.
    • Ticket: €5 - You can read the book in Dutch or English
    • There is room for 25 participants max.


    About the book
    Home is a poignant novel about a defeated man who finds his home again. Frank Money, a soldier filled with self-hatred, returns to racist America after sustaining injuries in Korea. With his sister, Frank is forced to return to the place in Georgia where they grew up. He must face both his unpleasant childhood memories and his war experiences, and wonders who he really is.
