Books from Lithuania has stopped its activities

Posted in about us by Heiko Strunk on 3. August 2010

Yesterday we have received sad news  from Lithuania. The financial crisis made the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Lithuania close Books from Lithuania, which worked as a non-profit organization from 1998 to 2010.

Books from Lithuania has been one of the earliest partners in our international lyrikline network. They brought us no less than 20 Lithuanian poets with many many translations.  Poems of nearly 40 international poets can be read in Lithuanian translation..

Farewell, good people of Books from Lithuania. A special big thank you to its director Aušrinė Jonikaitė!
We very much hope not to loose the strong connection to Lithuania.
