An Edinburgh chapter of NOC LITERATURY 2012 (Literature Night) will take place on Wednesday 16th May!
LITERATURE NIGHT 2012
Organised by Czech Centres in cooperation with EUNIC (European Union National Institutes for Culture) Literature Night’s aim is to offer the platform to European countries to present their contemporary writing and to present new European literary voices in a creative way. In 2012 big and small literatures will be presented in many interesting forms in European cities again.
Edinburgh’s first ever chapter of Noc Literatury will turn the fantastic Scottish Poetry Library into a smörgåsbord of European literature, with short talks, flash fiction, a poetry cafe and a panel discussion.
Drop in for free and while away the evening with words from across Europe including: Czech academic and journalist Jan Čulík looking at the work of Emil Hakl; writer and broadcaster Peter Mackay exploring contemporary Gaelic stories and playwright Clare Duffy telling us more about ANA - a daringly bilingual play which she co-wrote with Pierre Yves Lemieux.
There will also be the opportunity to order a poem – from Romania, Slovenia and Spain – from our 'Poetry Cafe', part of the Scottish Poetry Library’s The Written World project, to have stories from across Europe read aloud to you between the stacks and to dip into the wonderful books surrounding you.
Keep an eye on this space, Twitter (@EdinCityofLit) and Facebook for updates...
In partnership with the Traverse Theatre, the Scottish Poetry Library and the Edinburgh International Book Festival
