The first selling stand for original Romanian books abroad will open today in London; it is initiated and supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute (ICR), and located in the heart of the British capital, at the European Bookshop near the famous Piccadilly Circus, ICR London informs. The President of the Romanian Writers’ Union Professor Nicolae Manolescu, the Romanian Ambassador to the United Kingdom Ion Jinga, the Managing Director of European Schoolbooks Frank Preiss, and the ICR London Director Dorian Branea will take part the event. The ‘Romanian Corner’ at the European Bookshop, which adds to the shop’s French, Italian, German, Spanish and Portuguese collections, includes volumes of great classic authors and of important writers of the pre-war period, next to contemporary best-sellers, poetry, children’s literature, art albums, philological and Romanian language teaching instruments, CDs, and audio books. More than 150 titles on the ‘Romanian bookshelves’ come from ICR’s Publishing House and especially from the best-known Romanian publishing houses. This endowment is completed by a much larger collection available for online sales at www.romanianbookshop.co.uk.
