Days of Macedonian Literature in Croatia

Objavljeno 2.10.2015.

The National and University Library in Zagreb in cooperation with the Macedonian National and University Library Sv. Kliment Ohridski is organising Days of Macedonian Literature in Croatia, which will be taking place on 5 and 6 October 2015. This special programme will consist of an exhibition and a roundtable.

On 5 October 2015, the Library will host the opening of the exhibition entitled Macedonian Literature in Croatian. The exhibition will feature the Croatian translations of works originally written in Macedonian and published in Croatia since 1991, the related literary reviews, treatises on literary theory, anthologies and an interesting selection of reading books. The exhibition will be on view until 9 October 2015.

The roundtable will be held on 6 October under the title Croatian Translations of Macedonian Literature and Croatian-Macedonian Cultural Cooperation (Mezzanine Floor, 11.00), giving writers, translators and publishers from both countries the opportunity to discuss in greater detail various possibilities for mutual cooperation.

Cultural cooperation between Macedonia and Croatia is constantly being developed and strengthened, which greatly contributes to an improved public awareness of the valuable literary traditions of both countries.

In November 2014, the Macedonian National and University Library Sv. Kliment Ohridski hosted a special two-day programme entitled Days of Croatian Literature in Macedonia, whose exhibition, literary get-together and public debate presented works and authors of Croatian literature.
