Join us at the British Library for an evening celebrating Ukrainian Literature. Bringing together organisations across the UK, this event will feature enchanting readings and a chance to connect with the culture of Ukraine. Whether you are a curious newbie or an avid reader, delve into the beauty of the literature of Ukraine.

The Berlin International Literature Festival, in cooperation with the Frankfurt Book Fair and the German PEN Centre, has established a worldwide reading of Ukrainian literature on 7 September 2022. For one day organisations across the world and displaced Ukrainian refugees will be united through a love of reading.

If you’re attending in person, please arrive no later than 15 minutes before the start time of this event. We are committed to the safety of our event bookers. Find out how we are welcoming you to the Library safely.
