Wim Hazeu in book store Douwes

On Thursday evening February 23, 2018, I attended a lecture by Wim Hazeu on his recent biography of Dutch author and painter Lucebert. The evening was organized by the well-known book store Douwes in the Hague.

Since Lucebert was fond of Jazz music, Frans Friedrich, a great jazz musician, was invited to play before and in between the lecture. The combination between the inspiring lecture of Wim Hazeu and the sound of Frans Friedrich (who played a couple of tunes by Miles Davis – including ‘All blues’ – one of my favorites) turned out to be a great one.

Afterwards I discovered that the book store had a copy of the biography of Dutch author Simon Vestdijk,  also written by Wim Hazeu. I had been looking for this book for quite a while. Believing it was out of print, I was extremely glad to find it. I was very pleased that Wim Hazeu was kind enough to sign it for mee.

All in all I had a fantastic evening. Thanks boekhandel Douwes for organizing this event!
