    The ‘School der Poëzie’ invites Amsterdam students to dive into the work of our festival guests Ikraaan, Dalilla Hermans, Fatma Aydemir and Hengameh Yahoobifarah als bron van inspiratie. They will present their work on stage in private programs on Friday morning and afternoon presented by journalist and host Bahram Sadeghi.

    What is it like to be Asian in France? Why is it so hard to talk about race and racism in the country of egalité and universalisme? In the new episode of Current Literary Affairs, the French writer and podcaster Grace Ly speaks with journalist Gülden Ilmaz about literature, culture and identity. Live from Read My World Festival!
