Big national and international literary names will talk about their latest novels at the International Literature Festival Utrecht (ILFU) Book Talks. On 9 September, the American author Colson Whitehead will be in Utrecht. This Pulitzer prize-winner wrote the international bestseller The Underground Railroad, a novel about slavery and Cora’s flight from a cotton plantation in the mid-nineteenth century. He recently published a new novel, The Nickel Boys, about two teenagers attending a tough reform school in Florida at the start of the civil rights movement.
