The theme of the 88th Boekenweek which takes place from Saturday 11 to Sunday 19 March, is I am everything. Lize Spit writes the Boekenweekgeschenk and Raoul de Jong the Boekenweekessay. There will also be a Frisian edition of the Boekenweekgeschenk.

Readers receive the Boekenweekgeschenk in the bookstore when they spend € 15 on Dutch books. The Boekenweekessay is available in stores for €5. Frisian and Flemish editions of the Boekenweekgeschenk will also be published. Shortly before the start of the Boekenweek, the Boekenweekgedicht will be revealed.
