And Other Stories’ long-held plan to create a special reading group series in collaboration with the European Society of Authors has received some welcome funding from the Michalski Foundation. Our inaugural reading group in this series will focus on a number of Russian and Ukrainian titles listed in the three “Finnegan’s Lists” so far released by the Society. The Finnegan’s Lists propose titles recommended by high profile authors including Oksana Zabuzhko, Ilma Rakusa, Andrei Kurkov and Vassili Golovanov. Future reading groups in this series are likely to look at Arabic, German and French titles – not all at once! Our discussion, both online and in person, might lead to one or more of the featured books being published in English.
This group is chaired by Anna Aslanyan, who can be reached via firstname.lastname@example.org for more specific information.
