#ReadNordic

ReadNordic_logo_vlajky_CMYK_pozitivni_1200The campaign #ReadNordic is focused on promotion of Nordic literature in the Czech Republic. It is organized by Embassy of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden in Prague, coordinated by the Scandinavian House and supported by the Nordic Culture Fund, Danish Arts Foundation and Swedish Arts Council.

The campaign started in September 2015 and continues till May 2016 when the Nordic countries will be the guests of honour at the Book World Prague, the largest annual book fair in the Czech Republic with more than 35.000 visitors. The campaign, divided into 8 thematic months (see the table below), is run mostly on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram – follow and use the hashtag #readnordic). A culture event connected to the campaign theme takes place every month.

A Nordic reading challenge is organized throughout the campaign – read eight Nordic books corresponding to monthly criteria, fill in the e-form or paper leaflet and win a trip to Scandinavia or share your reading experience on social media using the campaign hashtag and win every month. More information here (only in Czech).
