EmmaV

My name is Emma and I started working for the ABC The Hague/Leidschendam stores in 2021. Before that, I studied English Literature at Leiden University. I specialized in nineteenth/twentieth-century fantasy and children’s literature, but also enjoyed a course on the folklore of plants in medieval manuscripts. As a buyer for the Nature and Kids section I am happy I get to work with these themes again! In my spare time I like drawing, flute playing, cooking and watching comedy shows and reading books, of course! I mainly like reading cozy fantasy, books on folklore and nature.
