We are excited to share the first part of a series of video readings from the publication Every Day Until Antwerp with you! In this series, Jacqueline Schoemaker takes the viewer with her on her journey to Antwerp through fragments from the book.
Every Day until Antwerp is a literary travel journey about a walking trip from Amsterdam to Antwerp, along the railway line of the old Benelux train that by now has ceased to be. Determined not to go home at the end of a day’s walking but to camp on the land that up till then she had only known as an image seen through the train window, Jacqueline Schoemaker set off, pulling a tent and a sleeping bag in a shopping trolley behind her. She walked in this way from the city where she lives to the city where she grew up.
