After tonight’s lecture by Abdelkader Benali, a book signing will take place. You can buy one of his books, which the author will sign! Unfortunately, for the internationals his books are only available in Dutch.
The central theme of the lecture is cultural heritage. Benali will illustrate the lecture ‘Cultural Heritage Is Empowerment’ by his own personal history, as an immigrant and a son of a butcher in Rotterdam. Born in Morocco, Benali found his way in Holland and learned to speak the language and became a writer and journalist.
How did Benali manage to succeed? Who inspired him? What are the obstacles he had to conquer? And how did he find his place in this society? In this inspirational lecture, Benali will tell his life story and explore how his cultural heritage is fulfilling his life.
Benali has been described as one of the Netherlands' leading writers. He wrote several novels, including ‘De langverwachte’ (The Long-Awaited), ‘Marathonloper’ (Marathon Runner) and his latest book: ‘Brief aan mijn dochter’ (Letter to my daughter).
You don't need to sign up for the lecture.
