ILFU Book Talks

ILFU Book Talks

During the ILFU Book Talks, we welcome exceptional international authors to the ILFU in Utrecht. After a speech by a local admirer, the guest for the evening will share their thoughts, background information and sources of inspiration for their work in an in-depth interview. The Book Talks are (usually) followed by a book signing and an opportunity to meet the author.

No names or dates have yet been confirmed for 2020, so keep an eye on this page to find out who we’ll invite to give a Book Talk this year.
