After the project's launch in 2023, Tales of EUkraine participated again at the Bologna Children's Book Fair, the world’s leading professional event for the publishing sector for children and young adults. 

TEUk's event took place on 9 April at the AIE Italian Collective Stand, within the context of Bologna Book Plus. Enrico Turrin (FEP) and Olena Odynoka (Ukrainian Book Institute) briefly presented the project and what it offers to European publishers, focusing their attention on TEUk's intermediate results.

March 2024 marked the project's mid-term. During its first 18 months, 21 publishers from 6 different countries joined Tales of EUkraine, and 35 titles have already been published or planned.

The project's results so far translate into over 75,000 copies already published and more than 190,000 copies scheduled to be published in the upcoming months, corresponding to 63,6% of TEUk's initial objective of 300,000 copies.

About Tales of EUkraine

  About the project Tales of EUkraine (TEUk) is an opportunity for European publishers to support their Ukrainian counterparts and to display their solidarity to the most vulnerable victims of the conflict by doing what they do best: publishing books. This project will bring together European and Ukrainian publishers to deliver bilingual children’s books to several communities hosting Ukrainian refugees, fostering integration and mutual understanding. TEUk has built a catalogue of Ukrainian children’s books available for publishers to acquire the rights to and publish them in bilingual editions. The project partners will purchase the part of the print run to be distributed to displaced children and organise its distribution to the Ukrainian refugee communities, whilst publishers will be invited to promote the book to their national communities. TEUk will facilitate the integration of Ukrainian children in their host countries, increase the knowledge of Ukrainian culture across the Unio
