Pages Bookstore Café is popping up at the Prince Claus Fund Gallery in Amsterdam starting 12 June 2017. Samer Al-Kadri created the original Pages Bookstore Café in Istanbul as a meeting place and a space for spontaneous events, where displaced Syrians and locals alike could meet and enjoy literature, music, performance and art. Its motto: “Pages, it’s your home.”
Now a Pages Bookstore Café is opening its doors and its heart in the Netherlands!
