Oeroeg is this year’s free book

The novella Oeroeg by Hella S Haasse is this year’s free gift to library vistors, 61 years after it was first published. The book, about race relations in the colonial Dutch East Indies, will be handed out from October 23 to November 20 as part of a campaign to boost reading.
