The Slovenian Book Days will be held in several towns across Slovenia this week.

The festival will begin in Maribor tonight with a presentation of an installation entitled Time Capsule. It is made from worn out and disused books, featuring contributions by acclaimed Slovenia authors who had been the festival's main guests in the past. This will be the 20th year running that Maribor will pay its homage to literature. In Ljubljana the first events are scheduled to kick off tomorrow. As part of the festival, several venues across Slovenia will host more than 90 events until Sunday.

The Slovenian Book Days are organised each year around World Book Day, which falls on the 23 April.
