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.
Several of this year’s readings will be interpreted into the Czech sign language. Deaf visitors can use a special route during the Literature Night, and hearing visitors can take mini sign-language courses at some of the reading venues.
