You probably remember it: Boekie Night. Eindhoven's book talk show that has been a household name in the city and in the book world for many years. An evening full of writers, literature, music and above all: a lot of fun. This year Boekie Night returns to our stage for three nights. The first edition will take place on May 30th. You know, as usual.

This programme is Dutch spoken.

On May 30, Conny Braam and Nhung Dam will visit. The music is provided by Simits this edition. And Wim Daniëls is the presenter of the evening.

Conny Braam was co-founder and chairwoman of the Anti-Apartheid Movement Netherlands for many years. In 1992 she debuted with Operatie Vula (1992). She then wrote the novel Zwavel (1996), which was nominated for the Gouden Strop.

Nhung Dam went to the Amsterdamse Toneelschool after her psychology studies. She works as a theater maker, actress, writer and columnist. Dam wrote several plays, which have been translated into German, English, Czech and Estonian.

Her debut novel Duizend vaders was published in 2017, which was awarded the prize for the Best Groningen Book 2018 and nominated for the Dioraphte Literature Prize. Nhung Dam's second novel: Definitie van liefde will be published in 2023.

Wim Daniëls writes books, presents various TV programs and plays in the theatre. Together with Meriam Wehrens of Boekhandel Van Piere, he ran the successful book program Boekie Night for six years, which returns several times this year because of the jubilee of Bookstore Van Piere (175th anniversary).

Simits starts with Max Silverenberg. At little Max's house the music of the renowned Jewish singer Leo Fuld was played on a suitcase pick-up. Later, Max gathers a number of musicians around him who celebrate their love for music with friendship, spontaneity and fun. Simits' music is typically Yiddish. That means cheerful, but also sad and melancholic at the same time.

The next two editions of Boekie Night will take place on September 12 and December 12, 2023. More information will follow soon.
