Contemporary authors, non-traditional venues and well-known personalities: this is the face of a series of public readings – the Literature Night. The project is organized by the Czech Centers in collaboration with the EUNIC cluster Prague (Association of National Cultural Institutes of the EU Countries), foreign embassies in the Czech Republic and the Labyrint publishing house.

The aim of the Literature Night is to increase public interest in contemporary European literature and its currents of thought and creativity. It also points out the importance of multilingualism and the importance of translations from large and small languages.

The project has been organized by the Czech Centers since 2006. Seven years ago, the Union of Librarians and Information Workers (SKIP) also joined it, and the number of cities involved in the project is rising every year.

Many European and non-European cities also take part in the Literature Night. The project has been gradually growing and becoming a cultural event with an international dimension.
