Members of the Swedish parliament, librarians, and a devoted public had the privilege of listening to Guus Kuijer in conversation with Lars H Gustafsson, pediatrician and member of the ALMA-jury, at Riksdagsbiblioteket (the parliamentary library) on Wednesday. The two gentlemen talked about violence and childhood memories, but also about Pollekes disappearance and Kuijers use of twitter.

On Thursday Guus Kuijer did a reading in Dutch at the International library in Stockholm. Many Dutch people in exile came to listen, both children and adults. Guus Kuijer talked about his writing and a little girl asked, “What is it like to be a writer?”

“It’s boring,” said Guus Kuijer, adding “but it’s not boring in your head…”
