ŠUŠUR! Festival of Words 2015 is focusing on the phenomenon of “summer readings”, romance novels and noir stories in the perception of regional and local authors of former Yugoslav countries.

In the warmest month of the year, on 9. and 10. August, ŠUŠUR! Festival brings literary treats to Korčula for the fourth time with the hot topic of Love & Mystery novels, reserving for each genre one evening of literary debate in the surroundings of the picturesque medieval old town of Korčula in Dalmatia, Croatia. During the discourse the authors will share with the audience their interpretation of the popular fiction genre.

Suspense caught between the scenic medieval buildings will accumulate on the first day of the Festival with carefully lined up writers, who will read and discuss the position of the Mystery novel genre. The audience will be welcomed by tension and action, crime and conspiracy in the readings of the following authors: Ante Tomić (HR), Želimir Periš (HR), Rumena Bužarovska (MK) and Mirjana Novaković (RS).
