|Visit of Vivian den Hollander at FIS|
|For the second
time in a row, the Frankfurt International School (FIS) along with
Stichting Nederlands Onderwijs in Frankfurt (SNOF, Foundation for
Instruction in Dutch Language in Frankfurt), organized a literature
afternoon on the premises of the Frankfurt International School in
On Saturday, November 5th, Vivian den Hollander - a well known Dutch writer of children books for ages 3-12 and winner of several renowned prices - visited the FIS to read extracts of her own stories to our smallest pupils. Vivian den Hollander was invited by the First Language Program Team as part of its cultural program. About 50 Dutch and Belgian pupils, their families and friends attended the reading. The audience was captured by Vivian's fascinating reading style. The commons - or Rose Carpet Area - was set up cozily and during break, coffee and tea was served. After the readings, the children and parents had the opportunity to look into Vivian's work and buy some of her wonderful stories which Vivian gladly signed for them. By doing so, the books became a very personal souvenir.
I would like to thank Vivian once again
for coming all the way from Gouda, and our sponsors (Consul-General of the
Netherlands, Dhr. Hesseling, Mrs. Adèle Hodgson (FIS) and Mrs. Andrea
Ruytenberg (SNOF)) for making this event possible.
