BERLIN — The international literature festival berlin (ilb) and the Lepsiushaus Potsdam are organizing a worldwide reading on the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide and the organizers are calling on cultural institutions, radio broadcasters and universities as well as schools to take part in the initiative and to organize their own readings on April 21, 2015.

The text selected for the reading has been taken from chapters seven and eight from The Book of Whispers by Varujan Vosganian. The text is available in 15 languages on www.worldwide-reading.com . Shortly more information will be available about where readings will be taking place.

More than 300 authors from more than 65 countries are supporting this initiative, among them Nobel Prize for Literature laureates Mario Vargas Llosa, Herta Müller, Elfriede Jelinek, Orhan Pamuk, Günter Grass and John M. Coetzee.

To organize a reading, send relevant information by the 30th of March 2015 to [email protected], including details of the exact location and time of event as well as the name of the participants.
