As we already have connections including Opera and Film, it must be possible to develop a Literature connection too. I'm still trying to find a right angle on that one, as there of course are books published about everything. A link could be: Books by Nobel Prize winning authors.

Examples:
- Istanbul: Istanbul, memories of a City by Orhan Pamuk.
- Mehmed Paša Sokolović Bridge: The Bridge on the Drina by Ivo Andrić.

Any ideas for a third? Or other Literature related connections?
