Russian stand at the London Book Fair 2012
February 24, 2012Read Russia! is the name of this year’s official Russian stand at the London Book Fair. Sponsored by the Federal Agency for Press and Mass Communication under the direction of Vladimir Grigoriev and organised by Academia Rossica, the stand represents key Russian publishers at the LBF 2012.
Further to this, the stand is part of the greater Read Russia project, a new initiative for the international promotion of Russian writing. It includes the availability of translation grants, holds annual translation prizes and offers grants for visiting the Moscow International Book fair. The stand is also a preview of the Read Russia 2012 venture in New York, bringing the largest ever representation of Russian literature, book culture and publishing industry to the US as part of the BookExpo America Russia Global Market Forum programme.
Over 40 Russian authors and translators are expected to travel to New York to take part, as well as a significant number of leading figures in the publishing industry. Please come to our stand Y255 for more details of all opportunities available! (Source: Academia Rossica)
