Sixteen authors from eight countries will take part in the 15th edition of the literature festival The Breath of Europe which will take place in Ruse between October 3 and 9, said Prof. Penka Angelova, chair of the organizer Elias Canetti international society. According to her, the idea is for the festival to show the modern breath of Europe.

One of the directions is political culture. “Political culture means political responsibility and connection to the civil agenda,” said Prof. Angelova. 

The festival opened on Monday with the presentation of the graphic novel “On a Thread.1968. A True Story” by Vesselin Pramatarov, which tells the story of three Bulgarian students who protested against the 1968 invasion by the Warsaw Pact in Czechoslovakia. 

The audience will get acquainted with the work “Encounters with the Devil” by Sasko Nasev, director of the Culture Information Centre of North Macedonia in Sofia. 

The programme includes the presentation of the novels “The Long Summer of Eternity” by Silvia Tomova, “The Bonfire” by Hungarian author Gyorgy Dragoman and “Encirclement” by Austrian Lucas Cejpek.

Tom Schulz from Germany has chosen to present his collections of poems “Travel warning for Countries Oceans Ice Bergs” and “The Relocating of Stumble Stones”, and poet and artist Roman Kissiov, “The world of words”.
