Sophie van der Stap was 21 years old when she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. The girl with the nine wigs, her fresh and candid account of the illness, was a best-seller in Holland and got soon translated into 16 languages worldwide and was the inspiration for an international movie (to be released in 2012). A sequel, inspired on Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha, followed. It’s called ‘A blue butterfly bids farewell’ and talks about the journey after her illness. Sophie will take us along in her incredible and brave journey and inspires us to have strength and belief.
