Today Louis Paul Boon would have been 100. In Flanders this anniversary goes not unnoticed with lots of expo's (in Aalst and Antwerp), readings, events, etc.
For those unfamiliar with Boon check out the wikipedia page which gives a brief summary of his life and works.
There's even an L.P. Boon community with a regular magazine named 'Boelvaar Poef'.
And not to forget the Louis Paul Boon Documentation Centre.
All info on the special events this year can be consulted the special dedicated website.
