Perfect mix of music, gastronomy and literature on Jasmin B. Frelih's event in Ljubljana

Although the event description on the bookshop's page mentioned a "musical performance" to be part of the event organised to celebrate Jasmin B. Frelih's EUPL victory, not many expected the author to provide the soundtrack himself. This pleasant surprise provided the perfect finale for an event a culturally well-versed participant described as "one of the most inspiring and interesting book presentations or readings” he has ever attended.

Champagne and cakes awaited those who decided to take a glimpse at Slovenia's maybe most promising upcoming writer, talking to a fellow literary talent, Carmen L. Oven. During the whole event, Jasmin has been answering questions in his usual witty and inspiring way, as well as with an almost unlikely level of humility whenever his success and talent has been brought up. And when everyone thought the event cannot get any cosier, he brought a guitar and started playing a few songs for the misty-eyed audience.

A short video with the author conducted before the event will be available soon.
