European Literature Night 2015

ELN booklet cover

Welcome to the UK’s seventh European Literature Night! Held simultaneously in 24 cities around the continent, London’s events are a highlight of the capital’s literary calendar.

This year we’re delighted to see European Literature Night move beyond just one night as we offer a host of events, from the main night’s plethora of inspiring interviews to a spoken word wonder fest, from learning the tricks of the translators’ trade to hearing stories of exile which connect Europe to the rest of the world. There’s something for everyone and literature by writers whose names you may not know yet, but will remember for a long time afterwards. Explore the different events below for full information and booking.
