Launch party for Freeman's magazine: Thursday February 11 at 5.30 pm

Join us for the Amsterdam launch of Freeman's, a new literary biannual edited by renowned literary critic and former Granta magazine editor, John Freeman. 
Part literary journal, part anthology, Freeman's will showcase new work from emerging voices and the world's best-known writers. The first issue, entitled 'Arrival', brings together the best new fiction, nonfiction and poetry about that electrifying moment when we arrive. The issue features previously unpublished writing by Haruki Murakami, David Mitchell, Louise Erdrich, Dave Eggers, and Lydia Davis, among many others, and introduces new writers, such as Sudanese writer Fatin Abbas.
The event, which is hosted by Athenaeum Nieuwscentrum, the Writers Studio Amsterdam and The Initiative for Narrative Journalism, will feature a conversation between Euan Monaghan from Structo Magazine and John Freeman on the theme of arrival: in today's culture of migration, what does it mean to arrive? How do we negotiate different kinds of arrival? What role do writers and story-telling play in helping us make sense of these changes?
There will also be a Q&A session where you can avail yourself of Freeman's impressive literary brain - in addition to his experience as an editor, he has interviewed some of our favourite writers, such as Doris Lessing, Salman Rushdie, Don DeLillo, Toni Morrison, David Foster Wallace and many more.
Hope to see you there!
A special thanks to Freeman's publisher Grove Atlantic for helping to make this happen!
