About six times a year, the Leeskabinet organises an interesting lecture relating to culture, society and science. At least one of these is a literary lecture in which a Dutch author talks about his or her work. Our lectures are topical and inspiring; the Leeskabinet likes to provide food for thought. Please note that our lectures are Dutch language. The Leeskabinet also organises excursions to libraries and museums.

Members of the Leeskabinet receive an invitation to each lecture. Lectures and other activities are also announced on the website, in the newsletter, and on Facebook and Twitter.

Our lectures take place at Erasmus University campus or at other venues in Rotterdam. Lectures are generally free; occasionally, we charge admission. In that case, members receive a discount.

As member of the Leeskabinet, you also receive a discount for the literary evenings of Boek & Meester, which often hosts international writers.
