Amsterdam | Murakami Festival

murakamifest The Dutch literary magazine Das Magazin turns Amsterdam into a gigantic Murakami reading club. On Saturday the 11th of January the Murakami Festival will take place in venues across the city.  Join the Murakami reading club! A month before the festival, five hundred readers will receive Murakami's newest book, a month before it will be officially sold in (book) stores. They will be the very first readers of 'Colorless Tsukuru Taziki and His Years of Pilgrimage'. During the Murakami Festival fifteen reading clubs will take place simultaneously, at different locations in Amsterdam. At each, 25 readers can talk about Murakami's newest book with a passionate discussion leader.
