It is not unusual that Belgian writers are not known as “Belgian” authors,even in their own country. Therefore, ARA Belgica, in cooperation with the Bibliotheca Wittockiana, decided to enhance the Belgian literary world through its coming event.
The Bibliotheca Wittockiana, renowned for its outstanding standards and know-how with regard to binding techniques, is the ideal place to host such a prestigious collection of classic or contemporary literature.
