In a good bookompany

In a good bookompany

We invite you to the event "In a good bookompany", which will be held with the support of the Ministry of Culture and Media and the partnership of the National and University Library on Wednesday, March 29, 2023, starting at 2:30 p.m. at the National and University Library in Zagreb.

"In a good bookompany" is an initiative of our publishing house to create a national platform for all who encourage reading as an important form of personal knowledge and development, and promote the importance of cultural dialogue. The theme of the event in Zagreb is In the global backyard and has three parts: a panel with respectable participants from different fields, a conversation between two interesting guests on the topic of reading and branding, and an inspiring talk by a man who brought mathematics closer to the wider population.

We will discuss the importance of reading and transferring knowledge in the global backyard, connecting with the world in which we value our own, but also other cultures. We will also talk about the role of the media in encouraging reading, branding in the global backyard and the impact we are having on the world. In short, we will spread knowledge and promote reading in interaction with the public. We chose the following titles as the subject of our conversations: Erika Fatland – Sovietistan; Sylvain Tesson – The Art of Patience: Seeking the Snow Leopard in Tibet; Jean Ziegler – Capitalism explained to my granddaughter; Shaun Walker – The long hangover, and Francis Fukuyama – Identity.

Be "In a good bookompany" with Vlatka Kolarović, Ksenija Banović, Tamara Babun, Hrvoje Balen, Ivan Koprić, Danica Ramljak, Višeslav Raos, Dubravka Sinčić Ćorić, Dražen Klarić, Božo Skoko and Toni Milun.
