Online Book Club: The Cut Out Girl
Meet the Dutch is a brand new series in which Studium Generale and City Central go beyond the stereotypes to understand Dutch culture, as reflected in film, music, literature and art.
Unfortunately, the first event Perceptions of World War II on April 14 had to be cancelled. The good news is that we reschedule the event for this autumn (date to be announced). Even better news is that we added a preceding event on May 13; an online book club on the recent award-winning book The Cut Out Girl. Lien de Jong, a Jewish war survivor and the main character of The Cut Out Girl, will be joining the book club and will be answering your questions. She will also be a guest at Perceptions of WWII this autumn.
