Andrej Nikolaidis in London

Wednesday, 18 April, 2012:
Montenegrin author and journalist, Andrej Nikolaidis,
to appear in London this April

Istros Books, a new British publisher founded to promote works of literature from South East Europe, is proud to announce that it will be bringing Andrej Nikolaidis to the London Book Fair this April. Nikolaidis has become well-known outside his native Montenegro as a journalist unafraid to tell the truth in his quest against corruption, fanaticism and intolerance.
Andrej Nikolaidis has recently been the subject of extreme controversy for his recent article on the anniversary of the formation of Republika Srpska. Indeed, the scandal caused by his article, which was published across the region, caused a diplomatic incident and calls for censorship and retraction of his words. The case caused such an outcry that he was called to defend himself on prime-time state TV, and asked to leave his position as political advisor to a local MP. To watch his appearance on Montenegrin TV, please follow this link:

Nikolaidis will be appearing at the English PEN CAFE at 13:00 on Wednesday, April 18th, and at 14:30 in the Literary Translation Centre in conversation with journalist, Rosie Goldsmith. Both events are being held as part of the London Book Fair at Earls Court.
He will also be involved in two events on Thursday 19th April:
Round-table discussion with the Croatian author Robert Perisic, the English traslator Will Firth and the Lterary Agent Ivan Srsen. 'Translating Transition – the politics of writing in S E Europe', at the European Bank (EBRD), One Exchange Square, London EC2. 12:00
And at the Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, EC2, from 6:30 till 8:00 pm, with author Robert Perisic and Will Firth. This event is held in cooperation with Literature Across Frontiers.
