Events in the Netherlands

Now, as a book blogger in the Netherlands, I know how tough it is to not get to go to all the amazing author events and book tours that they have in the US. However, a fair few of authors do actually make it over here. Occasionally though, these events are very badly promoted and we only find out about them a few days in advance.

From now on, I’ll keep this updated as one page you can check for upcoming author events. If you hear of a YA author event (or even not YA, some crossover for big name authors is fine) that is not listed here, please let me know via e-mail or Twitter! I will credit you for letting me know! Now let’s get out there and meet those authors!
