“Thank you, Poland”: the Ukrainian stand at The Book Fair in Warsaw


The Ukrainian stand will be seen in the Book Fair in Warsaw (which will open on May 26) with the slogan “Thank you, Poland”. Admission is free for all visitors.


At the Ukrainian stand you can buy books by Apriori Publishing House, Publishing House “Publishing House”, Motorny Ravlyk Publishing House, Fabula, Publishing House 21, Bilka Publishing House, NK Bogdan Publishing House, Staryi Lev Publishing House, NAUTILUS, Publishing House Black Sheep, Our Format, Ranok Publishing House, Safran Book Oriental Publishing House, Chas Masters Publishing House, SCHOOL Publishing House, Laurus, Letit.me, Meridian Czernowitz, Vivat, Yakaboo Publishing, DIPA Publishing House, and the Ukrainian Institute of National Remembrance, Museum of Contemporary Ukrainian Art Korsakov, as well as the National Center of Alexander Dovzhenko.

Meetings around Ukrainian literature, which occupies a special place in the program of the Book Fair in Warsaw, will be an important focus. The History and Culture Foundation, which organizes the fair, has invited publishers and authors from Ukraine, offering them both a free national stand and an important place in the fair’s program in solidarity with Ukraine. At the same time, according to an agreement signed by the Board of Directors of International Book Fairs around the world, Russian publishers, who for many years had their national stand in Warsaw, were denied participation in the fair.

At the collective stand of the Ukrainian Book Institute, you can get acquainted with the publishing offer of almost 35 publishers and institutions, and readers of the Fair will meet well-known and respected authors: Oksana Zabuzhko, who will deliver an inaugural lecture at the official opening of the Book Fair in Warsaw, and Victoria, Tamara Duda (Nut of Grain), Lyubov Yakymchuk and Kateryna Kalytko. Together with the Ukrainian Book Institute and the Embassy of Ukraine in Poland, transportation of books from Ukraine was organized, which is planned to be sold during the Fair. The Book Institute also promised to provide symbolic financial support for the presence of Ukrainian publishers at the Warsaw Fair.
