Night of the book in Supetar
Dear friends of books, we are happy to announce this year’s Book of Nights, the eighth edition, to be held on Tuesday, April 23rd. It is a manifestation that we are trying to provide a creative stimulus for reading, promoting the book and talking about its status and importance in contemporary society. The occasion is provided by the World Book and Copyright Day (April 23rd) and the Day of Croatian Books (April 22nd).
We have a particular desire to have the Night of Books in 2019 live in the streets,
Favorite characters and heroes from the world of books and comics
In the Book of the Year 2019 we invite you to pay special attention to the theme “Favorite characters and heroes from the world of books and comics”.
Time passes, the world is changing. Still, they do not stand. They inspire us, happy, inspire thinking and acting. They are our favorite characters, our heroes. Born in a fairy tale, a novel, a novel, a story or a comic, marked our growing up and without them nothing would be the same – culture, everyday life – and not ourselves. In the Night of the Book 2019 we invite them to the guests. The realm of reflection on our favorite fictional characters and heroes also provides us with a number of anniversaries we count this year: 180 years from the publication of the novel “The Age of Our Ages”, 80 years of Marvel Comics, 50 years of “Alan Ford” Exposition, 90 Years of First the events of Popaj, 50 years since birth and 20 years since the death of Edvina Biuković et al.
Night of the Book – the Bridge for Generations
The theme of our favorite characters and heroes is also an opportunity for intergenerational gatherings. By their existence they erase time, but also many other differences. Much is what we want to say to them, and without a doubt, they want to say a lot to us. In the Book of Nights 2019, we want to encourage them to foster a fruitful intergenerational dialogue. So ask your friends, the younger and older ones, which books and characters are best remembered and why? Are the messages of their patterns applicable today? And finally, do we have the same heroes that our moms, daddy, grandparents and grandparents had, whether we identify with them or find some new ones?

I really want to visit Brač! How do I do that?!
Brač is an island which can be reached by sea and air. Here are some basics.
BY SEA ///
There are two ferry lines connecting Brač with a land.
First is in Supetar, connecting Brač with Split, and the second is on Sumartin, connecting Brač with Makarska. There is a third port that can be reached by regular local boat lines, and that is Bol, on the south part of the island. Here, you can reach Brač from Split, or from a neighbouring island Hvar. More information about ferry lines and timetables you may find here.
Also, if you own or rent boats, you may just sail into any place on island Brač. We suggest Brač Deluxe for transfers!
BY AIR ///
Brač has its own small airport, situated in the middle of the island. More and more flights are introduced each year, and all the necessary information you may find on the airport’s website. If you need transportation from the airport to any other place on the island, may we suggest contacting some of the #bestofbrac service providers, such as Taxi Peša, Brač Deluxe, Rent a Motorino or M&B rent.
