Pick a story

The manifestation "Pick (up) a Story!" is a project set up by Sanja Lovrenčić aiming at popularisation of books and reading for pleasure. The first manifestation of this kind was held in May 2005 at Ribnjak Park, Zagreb when about a hundred picture books were strung along tree branches and then picked up by second grade children from adjacent schools. The manifestation included authors' readings, accompanied by a peformance of clowns and jugglers and has proved highly successful. After this first "gathering", the manifestarion has been held around forty times during the last ten years not only in Zagreb, but in other towns of Croatia (Bjelovar, Koprivnica, Zadar, Krapinske Toplice), and a total of about 3,000 children have so far had their pick of picture books. Most renowned Croatian authors and picture book illustrators have taken part at these manifestations.  

 



Special attention is paid to the quality of the books that are bought off from publishers for the picture-book gathering - they must be new, invented by Croatian authors and illustrators and produced in accord with the highest publishing standards.
