Lviv literature in focus
Ukrainian politicians and writers rubbed shoulders in September at Lviv’s ever-expanding International Book Forum, which has been the country’s premier literary gathering ever since its inception back in 1994. President Yushchenko was just one of the leading
figures to attend, and he was joined by top authors such as Yuriy Andrukhovich and the Kapranovy brothers. Other highlights of this year’s event included an appearance from Norwegian author Jostein Gaarder, who shot to fame with his novel ‘Sophie’s World’.
