Support independent journalism in Central & Eastern Europe.
Donate to TOL!
The project seeks to highlight interesting and important books published in and about Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and the former Soviet Union. Donor: Fund for Central and East European Book Projects (CEEBP)
The project goals are to provide coverage of local-language books seeing this as an important way in which we can serve our readers throughout the region; to continue offering coverage of English-language books of significance; and to increase cooperation with local literary and cultural journals.
Continuing our long-term cooperation with CEEBP, TOL editors will commission a wide range of book reviews for publication in TOL’s book section as well as highlight important publishing trends across the region. In addition, TOL will contact the region’s cultural journals with the inter-linked goals of: encouraging the free-of-charge republication of TOL book reviews in these journals; obtaining permission to republish reviews and articles from these journals; boosting our number of qualified reviewers; and promoting TOL and our book section.

We would like to invite you to meet Kathryn Thier, a recognized expert and instructor of Solutions Journalism from the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.
Join us to learn more about the connections between investigative reporting and Solutions Journalism and discover the impact that bringing the “whole” story has on communities. Kathryn’s keynote speech will be followed by a panel discussion on bringing the solutions perspective into reporting practices with Nikita Poljakov, deputy editor in chief of the business daily Hospodářské noviny. Nikita is also head of the project “Nejsi sám” (You are not alone), which uses the solutions approach to tackle the issue of male suicide. The main program will be followed by an informal wine reception.
The event will take place on Monday, 25 March at 5 p.m. in the Hollar building of the Charles University Faculty of Social Sciences (Smetanovo nábřeží 6, Praha 1). The event will be in English.
Attendance is free upon registration - please, fill in the registration form.
