Contemporary literature, non-traditional places, well-known faces: such is the NIGHT OF LITERATURE, which in attractive or normally inaccessible places introduces the general public to excerpts from the new work of European writers performed by well-known actors. The unique combination of an unusual place, a distinctive interpretation and a literary text offers an extraordinary cultural experience and an opportunity to get acquainted with the thinking of contemporary European authors. The Night of Literature has gained a firm place in the Czech cultural calendar and has become an integral part of it.
Literature Night is one of the large-scale cultural projects that will take place as part of the Czech EU Presidency.
Several of this year’s readings will be interpreted into sign language. Deaf visitors can use a special route during Literature Night and hearing visitors can take mini sign-language courses.
