Experience Russian Literature in Frankfurt!

September 29, 2013
Experience Russian Literature in Frankfurt! The “Read Russia” program once again brings out the best in Russian literature to Frankfurt. During October 9-13, the Russian stand at the Frankfurt Book Fair (5.0 C 136) will display around 1,000 books from more than 60 publishers from Moscow, St Petersburg, and other Russian regions. There will be 40 events – both at the stand and at other venues at the fair – offering opportunities to meet with Russian publishers and literary agents who sell rights for publishing Russian writers, as well as with the writers themselves.

Literary critics, editors, publishers, and other literature specialists will participate in a series of roundtables, seminars, and presentations about new developments in contemporary Russian literature. Literary awards in Russia and abroad will be presented, including the “Read Russia” prize, as well as the Institute’s grant program and the “One Hundred-Volume Russian Library” project for major world languages.
