Latvia in London!

Marking the Baltic countries’ Market Focus status at the international London Book Fair, Arno Jundze, as Chair of Latvia’s Writers’ Union, on 6 April is donating 52 books by Latvian authors, translated into 19 languages.


Arno Jundzes inscription: This is one of the most important books in the Latvian Writers’ Union collection of works published with the support of the Latvian state as part of the Latvian Literature in the World programme supporting foreign publishers. It is essential that these publications live on, not only within the cultures of the countries in which they were published, but also in the book collection of the National Library of Latvia as testimony to our literature’s pathway on to the world stage.
