The Literature Night aims to promote contemporary literature and reading.
Participating European cultural institutions select authors and literary texts related to the topic, and actors read out excerpts from these books. The venues are unique places, otherwise not available to the public. The program is organised by EUNIC Hungary.
For three nights this year, the literary event will feature actors reading excerpts from 25 authors from 24 countries in special venues that are not literary or well-know. In Budapest, the inner city (Erzsébetváros) will host the readings. The topic this year: EMERGENCY EXIT.
The readings will take place in Budapest between 23-25 June 2021, and in Debrecen between 10-12 June 2021.
