On Sunday February 13th the poetry collection Sneeuweieren / Snow-Eggs by Peggy Verzett will be officially launched at Radio WORM. Grab a drink and tune in online for this event!
Sneeuweieren / Snow Eggs: the cookbook that doesn’t quite fit the genre and refers to much-needed uncertainty on an empty stomach.
Lieuwe Zelle (Radio WORM) will come together with Peggy Verzett, Paul Bogaers (Images and design), Pim Wiersinga (Translation) and Eleonoor Jap Sam (Founder and director of Jap Sam Books) for an interview about Sneeuweieren / Snow-Eggs. Together they will create a soundscape from a recipe with a synth show, to send Sneeuweieren / Snow-Eggs festively into the world.

The event will be broadcasted on 13.02.22 14:00-16:00
About Sneeuweieren / Snow-Eggs:
Yet another cookbook you’ll think! As if the mountain of cookbooks wasn’t high enough already! But dear hungry reader, one cookbook was still missing; the cookbook that doesn’t quite fit the genre and refers to much-needed uncertainty with an empty stomach. A cookbook that harks back to alchemy. Because the imperative mood is so annoying and needs to be exploited. Because the world of the psyche has endless contents that all want to feel they’re being fed.
In Sneeuweieren / Snow-Eggs seven dishes for seven different mental states of being have been collected. All our digesting causes great difficulties for the finest alleys in our softest facial expressions. Art helps to digest the uncertain instead of regurgitating what we already know. The menus in this cookbook belong to an old stomach that has been mapped, a stomach in which it’s all about slownesses in dark silences.

Peggy Verzett (1958) is a poet, painter and singer. She made her debut at publishing house Van Oorschot in Amsterdam, with Prijken die buik. In 2010, Vissing, was published by Querido. Haar vliegstro, appeared in 2016. Her fourth collection of poetry will be published in 2022. ‘Poetry can communicate before it is understood’, said T.S. Elliot. This quote has become her artistic mantra; sometimes hermetics as well as supple playfulness are present in her work. The first Jana Beranova Prize was awarded to her in 2019 for her idiosyncratic oeuvre.
