Hi, folks! Dane here, and today I’m feeling ambivalent because it’s the end of Latvian Literature week. I’m simultaneously elated and exhausted. What a blast.
In case you somehow missed the memo, Latvian Literature week is an initiative I launched after the British Council in Latvia and Latvian Literature were kind enough to invite me to spend a few days in Riga to learn more about the Latvian publishing scene. Throughout this week, I’ve been posting daily updates on both my blog and my YouTube channel with all sorts of fun stuff to help to introduce you to the exciting (and often surprising) world of Latvian poetry, prose and illustration.
This post is my last, for now at least. I may or may not have a number of Latvian books on my TBR pile and so I’m sure I’ll continue to post about Latvian literature in the weeks and months to come. In the meantime, let’s take a look at what I shared over the last couple of days.

Latvian Literature will also have a presence at London Book Fair, where The Baltics are the market focus. You can find out more about that by clicking here.
