Literatură

Evenimentele trec, cărţile rămân. Pentru ICR Londra, promovarea literaturii române este o preocupare constantă. De cele mai multe ori, proiectele noastre sunt realizate în parteneriat cu Centrul Naţional al Cărţii din Bucureşti, al cărui scop este de a publica literatură română de cea mai bună calitate la cele mai importante edituri.

În acelaşi timp, ne propunem să ridicăm nivelul popularizării autorilor români în rândurile publicului britanic prin intermediul unor numeroase evenimente organizate în cadrul marilor festivaluri britanice şi al târgurilor de carte, precum  London Book Fair. Organizăm, de asemenea, lecturi publice, dezbateri şi lansări de carte. Printre prestigioşii parteneri britanici cu care colaborăm se numără The Royal Society of Literature, British Library, Poet in the City, Waterstones Piccadilly și Librăria Europeană din Londra.
