From Liesbeth:
The local library and a bookshop are organizing it’s presentation of the new book on October 22 at De Buiksloterkerk, a church in Amsterdam-Noord. The presentation will be done by Henk Hofstede, who translated a lot of the songs. Also present will be Remco Campert, the oldest living and still active Dutch poet, who in the 70’s translated poems by Leonard.

Another famous author of Dutch literature, Arnon Grunberg has a daily column at the front page of The Volkskrant, and yesterday he did let us know that he had proof read the book already. He was very positive about the translations. He concludes that "not hope is the base of nearly all of human activity, but it’s despair".

At the presentation The Avalanche Quartet (this time as a Trio) will musically accompany this happening.

We had an evening in Amsterdam full of music and Leonard's translated poems yesterday.
The Poems where read by Henk Hofstede and Remco Campert (86) who made already in 1971 translations of Leonard poems.
