Swiss Storytelling Night takes place every year on the second Friday in November in venues all over Switzerland. When the nights become longer, when it is cold outside and winter is approaching, reading and storytelling are the proper remedy for low spirits. The Institute provides a slogan for the storytelling night, lists of books for a broad audience in keeping with the slogan, a poster and postcards designed by a Swiss illustrator that can be obtained for free by organisers of a storytelling night, and it provides suggestions and advice as to how to organise an event.
Swiss Storytelling Night is a collaborative project with Bibliomedia and UNICEF-Switzerland. The focus of this promotion is on general books and reading.
This project is run by The Swiss Institute for Children’s and Youth Media (SIKJM) (Switzerland).
