Nordic Library Week 2010

Already for thirteenth year Latvian libraries prepare for the Nordic Library Week to be held on November 8th -14th. More than 2000 institutions from the both sides of the Baltic Sea will gather children and adults to events dedicated to the theme of Magic North. The works read this year will explore the connections between the indigenous literary traditions of the Nordic and the modern fantasy genre, between myth and reality, past and present. This year, the organizers have selected readings from Andri Snær Magnason (Iceland), John Ajvide Lindquist (Sweden) and Lene Kaaberbøl (Denmark).
