Issue 16, September 2009.

September in Lviv means the annual national gathering of Ukraine’s leading authors and
publishers for a look at what’s new on the Ukrainian literary scene at the country’s leading book publishing forum. Thousands of readers will attend the event in the hope of picking up something fresh and rubbing shoulders with their literary heroes. Ukrainian language publishing has struggled to find its feet as a genre since the collapse of the Soviet Union and it has faced steep competition from mass produced Russian pulp fiction, but thanks to this enthusiastically attended annual event, the industry has a focus and is fast emerging from the post-Soviet doldrums. A host of international publishers and authors will also attend this year’s forum, with a new focus on e-publishing and the rising cult of the e-book.
