My book De hoeve en het hart: een boerenfamilie in de Gouden Eeuw (The Homestead and the Heart: a farming family in the Dutch Golden Age) was released on June 12th, 2019. Speeches were held by Mai Spijkers (publisher Prometheus), Wijnand Mijnhardt (Professor of Comparative History of the Sciences) and Henk Massink (senior policy officer at the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality). I’m also very grateful tho the board of the Mr. C. en mej. M. M. Vervoornstichting in Herwijnen. They opened up their beautiful old farmhouse Den Ouden Dijk for this book event.
