03.06.2008 - Barbara Voors

Barbara Voors (Sweden) was born as the daughter of a Swedish mother and Dutch father. In 1995 she had a literary hit in the Netherlands with the novel Zusje van me [Syster min]. This is the story of Saskia whose life is still heavily influenced by her twin sister who simply disappeared one day. The general public was impressed by Voors’ talent : Zusje van me sold 100,000 copies. Her latest novel Dooi can reckon on an equally enthusiastic reception since Voors has been positioned in the tradition of contemporary Scandinavian storytellers. Barbara Voors will be interviewed by Liddie Austin, journalist and editor of Red magazine.
