The culmination of the Romanian programme at the London Book Fair is a multimedia poetry show celebrating the Centenary of Romanian Unification (1918-2018) through poetry, visuals and music. The event features ten of the most talented young Romanian poets of diverse ethnic backgrounds: Michael Astner, Andrei Dósa, Robert Gabriel Elekes, Matei Hutopila, Henriette Kemenes, Claudiu Komartin, Mihók Tamás, Aleksandar Stoicovici, Livia Ștefan, and Victor Țvetov. With 2D animations by visual wizard Raluca Popa and live music by György Ligeti performed by virtuosos Ioana Forna, Adriana Cristea and Nikolay Ginov. The show is curated by Simona Nastac and produced by the National Museum of Romanian Literature in Bucharest. Also part of the European Poetry Festival.

The Brâncuși Gallery will host the "Wounded Words: Romanian Writers and the Great War" exhibition, produced by the National Museum of Romanian Literature in Bucharest. In Romania like elsewhere, the Great War precipitated immense political, social and cultural changes. A time of tragedy and hope, of malaise and aspiration was mirrored throughout Europe by a powerful literature, bursting with innovative energy, authenticity, and radical ambition. The exhibition, opened by literary critic and historian Ion Bogdan Lefter, showcases some of the best works of poetry and prose produced during and after the First World War by one of Romania’s greatest literary generation. Followed by a reception.
