Eat&Read picnic or What are the Moomins snacking on?

The Scandinavian house Brno in cooperation with the Open Gardens invites you to a culinary and literary experience, this time intended especially for young children and their parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles.

In the Open Garden (Otevřená zahrada) grounds the picnic blankets with guides will be laid out, where you can browse and read Finnish children’s books and taste the “Moomin” recipes. Literary gourmets from the Scandinavian house will, in the form of short excerpts read by the actress Kateřina Jebavá, introduce you to the best of Finnish children’s literature and, of course, the latest books.

Come enjoy a non-traditional literary picnic in Nordic style. No need to bring snacks – we’ll take care of that!

Admission: 120 Kč / snack pack; without snack pack free

The books are in Czech only.

The event is organized by the Scandinavian house Brno in cooperation with the Open Gardens and the publishing houses Argo and Host, with the financial support of the Brno Municipality and the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
