Author Joyce Bergvelt has been invited to attend the Taipei International Book Exhibition in February 2024 as part of a delegation of prominent Dutch writers.

In 2024 it will be 400 years since the Dutch had their first encounter with Taiwan, then still known as Formosa. To mark this anniversary, the Taipei International Book Exhibition (TIBE) – Asia’s largest book fair – has named the Netherlands as “Country of Honour”.

Architecture firm MVRDV has been selected to design the pavilion and shape the fair’s content. Besides an extensive event programme, there will also be an exhibition reflecting the fair’s themes of inclusivity, (post)colonialism, and sustainability, and children’s literature.
