We discuss female desire and the way we talk (or write) about this in literature. Why is this still a sensitive topic? An all-female round table talk. With an all-female cast of writers, we look at these issues. Among them is Lisa Taddeo, author of Three Women in which she followed three women up close during eight years, reading all of their correspondence, texts, this way getting an intimate look at the ins and outs of their sex lives. Marja Pruis (De Groene Amsterdammer) reads an opening statement on the state of female desire in fiction today, which she wrote especially for us. Writers Daan Borrel, Yael van der Wouden and academic researcher Margriet van Heesch (UvA) join her, Sarah Meuleman will be our moderator. This programme is a collaboration with publisher Nijgh & Van Ditmar as well as SLAA (Stichting Literaire Activiteiten Amsterdam).
