On May, 13th 2015 from 18.00 to 21.00 the event Literature Night will take place for the fourth time in Bulgaria and for the third time in Ruse. In the frame of this project, public readings at unconventional urban places are held at which on every half an hour actors will read extracts from contemporary European literary works, published after 2000. At every designated place an actor is going to continually read one extract. The audience will, thus, be able to move from one place to another, having the opportunity to get itself acquainted with literary works by authors from Bulgaria, Spain, Macedonia and Poland. To mark the 110th birthday of Elias Canetti, a special emphasis is placed on reading various extracts from the work of Canetti.
In the event flyer, visitors can collect stamps at each place. By collecting all the stamps, they have a chance to win a prize.

The project Literature Night is based on the conviction that literature is a unique creative tool of mutual understanding, cultural exchange helping to break down communication barriers. It aims to promote the dialogue between art and the urban space and to create a platform for presenting contemporary European literature to a wide readership of both literature fans and professionals: translators, publishers, distributors.

The organizers of the Bulgarian Literature Night are cultural institutes and embassies of the Member States of the European Union. The initiative is welcomed enthusiastically in Bulgaria. The cities participating in the Literature Night 2015 are Burgas, Varna,VelikoTarnovo, Gabrovo, Dobritsh, Pernik, Plovdiv, Ruse, Sofia, Stara Zagora and Shumen.

The organizers in Ruse are the International Elias Canetti Society, the Regional Library Lyuben Karavelov, Cultural Center BH (Buddha House), Restaurant Pontona and Narodno Čitališče Christo Botev (community center Christo Botev).
