500 years of Latvian Books events

The comprehensive five-year programme (2021–2025) is designed to highlight the most significant processes that once set in motion the dissemination of the Latvian written and printed word. That is why we have highlighted five trends. Through understanding antiquity, we will try to think about and imagine tomorrow!
