Within their project “Books in Schools”, which takes place in several countries of the Balkans, the writers Ana Đokić, Ema Pongrašić and Zoran Pongrašić made their first reading tour through Macedonia. Taking place between June 5 and 10, the tour took the authors accompanied by Kalina Bunevska Isakovska (Blesok Publishing House), to schools in Ohrid, Rostuše, Skopje, Tetovo and Struga. The writers read excerpts from their books and mentored workshops. The participating children were happy to get the opportunity to meet the authors in person. One of the pupils had the idea to stage a play made after the text by Ana Đokić, which they then also realized.
The events were organized by the cultural institution Blesok with the support of TRADUKI. Blesok also published the Macedonian translations of children’s books presented during the tour, also with the support of TRADUKI.
