LitVest, 10th edition. One of Europe’s most creative and important literary festivals is celebrating its tenth anniversary. Organised by the Timis County Library “Sorin Titel”, LitVest started in 2012 with a torchlight reading. The festival’s conceptual calendar includes initiatives such as Lecturi aprinse (readings in unusual sources of light), Text concerto (concerts “short-circuited” by literary interventions), The Riveter (the first issue of a British literary magazine devoted entirely to Romanian literature) ETC – capital letters are de rigueur.

LitVest 2021 will take place in the framework of the Christmas Park, organised at the Banat Village Museum by the Timis County Council, in collaboration with the cultural institutions under its auspices.
