On January 29th four poets from Friesland and Malta will read about potatoes in Palazzo De La Salle at 7pm. The Dutch Frisian-language poets invited to Malta are Hein Jaap Hilarides and Janneke Spoelstra. The Maltese poets who will be participating in the reading are Adrian Grima and Rita Saliba.

Poetry in Potato Bags is a unique project focusing on the exchange of language, poetry and potatoes between Malta and Leeuwarden. Both Maltese and Fryslân are officially bilingual and have a large treasure of poets and poetry.
