The Night of Middle East Fairy Tales to Take Place in Ljubljana

On Friday, 26 October 2018, at 6:00 p.m., the Night of Middle East Fairy Tales will be held at the Oton Župančič Library. It should be mentioned that in April 2018, the No Borders Corner book department (in Slovenian: Kotiček brez meja) was opened in this library, which currently exhibits literature in the languages of the Middle East.

The event programme assumes that the organizers, along with the guests, will read each selected fairy tale first in the original, and then in the Slovenian language. Both children and adults are invited to the Night of Fairy Tales because, as the organizers note, “to fairy tales all ages yield surrender.”

Along with the Night of Fairy Tales, the library will hold an exhibition of photographs by Boštjan Gretić, which finishes the project “With the Refugee Eyes” (in Slovene: Skozi oči begunca).
