Performances 9th of July – festival ‘Dichters in de Prinsentuin’

Three of the members of the Groningen Poetry Stanza will read their poetry during ‘Dichters in de Prinsentuin’, the annual poetry festival in Groningen (July 8,9 & 10). Just like last year, the festival will be in Hortus Botanicus in Haren. Ferdinand Lewis, Judith Wilkinson and Cecile Bol are part of the program. All three will read their work on Saturday the 9th of July as part of ‘Dichtbij’: unexpected and surprising poetry readings between the trees, shrubs and flowers. What a setting! Furthermore, Judith will take the stage a few more times. Check out the program of ‘Dichters in de Prinsentuin’ for more information: https://noordwoord.nl/dichtersindeprinsentuin/
