literature

Amsterdam’s rich literary scene includes a number of English-language events as well as some in various other European languages. Watch out for readings, book signings and performances in the American Book Center and its ABC Treehouse and keep your eyes peeled for events in the national cultural institutes such as the Institut français (formerly Maison Descartes) and the Goethe Institut. The Amsterdam Public Library (OBA) is also a central point for book lovers.
