Magnetic Latvia @ London Book Fair 2019

Visit the Latvian National Stand: 5D135C, March 12-14, 2019, Olympia London

From 12 -14 March, following-up on its #IamIntrovert success last year, Latvia will be participating in the The London Book Fair 2019. The Latvian industry will be represented by nine industry stakeholders looking to enhance business opportunities with partners from the UK and around the globe. In addition, a series of cultural events celebrating Latvian, as well as Baltic authors and books will provide an opportunity to learn also about the normative aspects of Latvian literature. We look forward to meeting you at the National Stand of Latvia at the stand Nr. 5D135C.

Throughout the fair, the 'Latvian Literature' platform, established to promote Latvian literature and its distribution abroad, is organizing several side-events for further exploration of Latvian literature today. Among the key events to attend during The London Book Fair 2019, you should consider the following:

  • 12 March @ 11.30am-12.30pm “Rising Stars: Children’s Authors and Illustrators from the Baltics” (Venue: Children’s Hub, London Book Fair)

Following the successful Baltic Countries Market Focus programme in 2018, the Baltic countries continue to introduce exciting new children‘s authors and illustrators to the UK children‘s publishing market. This panel discussion aims to celebrate three rising stars from the Baltics, who have recently been published and awarded in the United Kingdom. More information available here.

  • 13 March @ 2.30pm-3.30pm “Women in Publishing: Voices from the Baltics and the UK”       (Venue: The Cross-Cultural Hub, London Book Fair)

Focus on women in publishing, one of the hottest topics in the industry in the Baltics and the UK. Women holding some of the top jobs in publishing in Baltic countries, but how does that translate into the types of books published, the way the industry is run and the gender and pay balance in publishing? More information available here.

  • 14 March @ 1pm-2pm “Literature in Translation: Baltic Books in the UK”                                     (Venue: Literary Translation Centre, London Book Fair)

Following the successful Baltic Countries Market Focus programme in 2018 we will explore the impact of this participation on the United Kingdom publishing market and how it has changed perceptions of literature from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. Several UK publishers will discuss which books from the Baltics they have chosen to publish and why. More information available here.
