My Hero Bookworm
A Presentation by Serbian writer Vida Ognjenovic
Organized in collaboration of the Delegation of the European Union to the United States,
the Embassy of Serbia and the Orfelin Circle
Prominent Serbian writer, playwright, and theatre director Vida Ognjenovic will discuss her viewpoints on literature,
science, and the impact of modern technology, marketing and the internet.
"We live a period of global fixation on military power and tyranny of entertainment. Ours is the time that someone defined
as Post-humanism, in which erudition and interpretation have been replaced by information and keywords. Are we ready to keep
silent and gradually become post-humanists? No, I do not think so. Even one reader is a reader. For him and about him I
write and read. Maybe you are that reader, maybe you are, maybe she is, maybe he is. The unknown soldier of the war for the book;
in slang he is called a bookworm."
This event is part of the EU Delegation's Conversations in Culture event series - a mostly monthly series featuring some of
the best of European culture, including music, visual arts, theater, culinary arts, and literature.
