About the project
This year's Prague Literature Night, presenting to the public the current European literature, is a part of European Literature Nights project that was initiated by the Czech Centers and involves partner organizations from Lisbon, Vilnius, Wroclaw, Dublin and Bucharest.
In the above-mentioned cities, Literature Night will be presented in the same model already familiar to the Czech visitors. Thanks to the substantial support of the Culture programme of the European Union, the Literature Night will also take place in foreign countries. Furthermore, thanks to the cooperation with the Association of librarians, Literature Night will also take place in 8 other cities in the Czech Republic.
The project’s important extension is its modification in Brno, held on 29th of June, which focuses on non-traditional and multimedia presentations of literature and is organized by the publisher Větrné mlýny (www.vetrnemlyny.cz). Continuing the established tradition, several Czech Centres abroad organize their own version of Literature Night.
