Today I’m speaking with Barbara den Ouden of the Dutch Foundation for Literature. Anyone who has traveled to an international book fair is bound to have run into Barbara, who I believe to be something like a fixture at such events!
The Dutch Foundation for Literature supports writers and translators, and promotes Dutch literature abroad. A few months into the pandemic, they announced to have set aside an additional budget amongst others to help foreign publishers who acquire Dutch titles during these challenging times. So I reached out to Barbara to ask her for further details about these special support measures.
We also discuss the current situation in the Netherlands in terms of the Covid-19 pandemic, the book market and the economy in general.
Barbara's book recommendation: Rodaan Al Galidi, Holland (Uitgeverij De Kade, 2020; no foreign language editions available at the time of recording)
