New books - lots of events!

Fall season is new release season and we would like to highlight a number of book launches coming up:

Join us for a talk with Marieke Nijkamp and Corinne Duyvis about Young Adult literature and all things geek related.

What will the future look like in a world full of man-made disasters?
Paul Behrens and Malka Older are both investigating the question, one on an academic, the other on a fictional level.

Inside Black explores every shade associated with the term black. Author Leslie Browne and editor Joan Gannij will be presenting this book, with performances by artists who contributed to the book.

Finally, we have launched a new, informal events series willing to take you out of your work routine, and inside the magical world of books. On Tuesdays, go on Coffee Break with the ABC!

Wherever you are - whatever you do - keep reading,
your ABC staff
There is a yard sale going on in front of our Amsterdam store! While the sun is shining, drop by and browse super cheap comics, graphic novels, mangas and animation books - as long as stocks last!
