Literature as a European mother tongue: In our series “One is a CROWD”, we introduce you to authors from all over Europe who will be involved in the CROWD omnibus reading tour, taking place from May to July 2016, featuring 100 authors who will be travelling through 15 European countries. We asked them questions about text production, reception and mediation. In case you were wondering what a literary activist from Arnhem looks like, meet Jaap Blonk!

Outside I had the chance to take a few photos of Anneke Brassinga when I met her, smoking.
