Read Russia comes to the United Kingdom with exhibitions and readings and events at the London Book Fair April 8-10 and with the Read Russia Literary Showcase, being held at bookstores, universities, and other cultural sites across the UK in April.
Some of the most respected authors in contemporary Russian literature will be presenting their work - among them award-winning writers Zakhar Prilepin, Alexander Terekhov, and Pavel Basinsky, all of whom have highly-anticipated books planned for publication in English this year.
Both sets of events are designed to promote the UK-Russia Year of Culture 2014. This year Read Russia also will be presenting Russia’s biggest literary award, the Big Book Prize, and the first-ever Read Russia English Translation Prize this May in New York.
Come and visit these Read Russia events, panels and presentations across the UK and at the London Book Fair involving many of the biggest names in Russian literature, translation and publishing!
