Prague, the town of literature

The Municipal Library of Prague is the coordinator of the new project “Prague, the Town of Literature”. Its drift is to support a perception of Pragueas the place inspiring to literature production, reading and relationship to books. The project is financially supported by the city of Prague.

A campaign in the streets prepared for this autumn contains extracts of related text in showcases in the streets of Prague, literature trails and other similar activities.
