Book Launches

When affiliated researchers and colleagues in the Netherlands bring out a new volume – whether published with NINO/Peeters or elsewhere – NINO is glad to assist in organising a book launch in Leiden: an opportunity to present the new publication to colleagues, students, friends and family, and a celebration of the author’s achievement.
