The Forum of Slavic Cultures’ Living Villa cycle continues. Together with the Women Writers Route Association the FSK hosted the kick-off event of the 11th international seminar for translators of Slovenian literature, which is organised by the Slovenian Association of Literary Translators.
100 Slavic Novels
For the second time in a row, the FSK was a partner of the Slavic Garden programme at the Pula Book Fair. At the poetry evening entitled My Goal is – Horizon, which took place outdoors, visitors were able to listen to the poetry of five poets from the Slavic world in the dramatization and interpretation of the Croatian National Theatre in Zagreb.
The Centre of Slavic Cultures Moscow has traditionally organized the Festival of Slavic Cultures on the occasion of the Day of Slavic Literacy. This year it took place in hybrid form, partly live and partly remotely. The festival also included a round table dedicated to new Russian editions in the Hundred Slavic Novels collection.
