Latvian literature meets Estonian and Lithuanian literature 

Baltic Readings

The tradition of reading event of the authors from all the three Baltic countries has become one of the core events of the festival, because we believe in common values and traditions, that continue uniting the Baltic states and their cultures. 

The evening of Baltic literature offers a unique opportunity to meet the best Latvian, Estonian, and Lithuanian authors of this time, and hear them reading their own texts in the original language, while the translation into Latvian and English is also provided.

This festival tradition is kept in close cooperation with the best translators and institutions and organizations in Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuania, making it possible for the literatures of the neighbouring countries to travel and meet in the festival Prose Readings in Riga.
