The 25th Prague Writers’ Festival is underway in Prague. The three-day event, which brings together prominent writers and thinkers from around the world, this year revolves around a particularly topical theme – that of fear: fear of the unknown, fear of occupation, fear of change. Among the invited authors are Samuel Shimon from Iraq, Mahmoud Dowlatabadi fom Iran and Constantine Kokossis from Greece who will receive the Spiros Vergos Prize for Freedom of Expression. All festival events are being broadcast live by Czech Television.
