Welcome to the UK’s seventh European Literature Night! Held simultaneously in 24 cities around the continent, London’s events are a highlight of the capital’s literary calendar. This year we’re delighted to see European Literature Night move beyond just one night as we offer a host of events, from the main night’s plethora of inspiring interviews to a spoken word wonder fest, from learning the tricks of the translators’ trade to hearing stories of exile which connect Europe to the rest of the world. There’s something for everyone and literature by writers whose names you may not know yet, but will remember for a long time afterwards.

This year the ELN series of events is taking place at The British Library, Free Word Centre, The Phoenix and Waterstones Piccadilly
