READING LITHUANIA - READING THE WORLD
In 2018 Lithuania celebrates the 100th anniversary of the restoration as an independent state. This date is of special importance to Lithuania and its people – it marks the anniversary of the long road walked by the Lithuanian nation towards a free and independent State.
The Vilnius Book Fair will become a great opportunity to evaluate and feel how the country and the people of Lithuania have been changing, how they have lived, and which Lithuanian and world authors, personalities and texts have affected them over the last hundred years. At the same time, there will be an opportunity to discuss, research and talk about what kind of Lithuania and the world we will create through reading over the next hundred years.
