Rodaan al Galidi in the Nieuw Waldeck Library
An evening of stories, poems and music
Writer-poet Rodaan al Galidi and musician Monir Goran performed together in this musical-literary programme. Al Galidi talked about and read from his novel Hoe ik talent voor het leven kreeg (How I Developed a Talent for Life) and his new poetry collection Neem de titel serieus (Take the Title Seriously). Goran played some of his own compositions on the oud. Publisher Jurgen Maas provided an introduction.
