Wassenaar Ida Gerhard lecture with Ingmar Heytze ‘The Hundred of Heytze’
For the second time, the Ida Gerhard lecture will take place in Wassenaar on Thursday 19 May. Ida Gerhardt is one of the greatest poets in the Netherlands. The poet Ingmar Heytze reads from his collection ‘De Hundrede Heytze’ in his very own unique way. He provides his poems with text and explanation in the form of anecdotes, stories, speeches and improvisations, with which he has for a long time created furore in the Netherlands and Belgium.
The annual lecture on the power and necessity of poetry in Wassenaar as a tribute to the poet Ida Gerhardt (1905 – 1997) takes place in the Freethinkers’ NPB church building at Lange Kerkdam, next to the house where Ida Gerhardt spent almost 10 years with her, the family has lived.
Thursday 19 May at 20.00 in Fritænkernes Bygning NPB Wassenaar, Lange Kerkdam 46, Wassenaar. Admission € 10.00
