23/01/04: The Global PEN Library, Slovakia

Call for donations to the Global PEN Library – A message from Gustáv Murín, President of Slovak PEN Centre:

The aim of this Library is to collect books in original languages from authors over the world. These books primarily serve the students of foreign languages and literature at Comenius University, Bratislava (capital of Slovakia), although the Global PEN Library is open to everyone who would like to read contemporary authors in their own languages.

If you would like to make a contribution to this uniquely worthy library, gathered from PEN members and Centres all over the world, please send them to the following address:

Dr. D. Gondová, director


Gondova 2

818 01 Bratislava 16



Recently we received the following message from Slovakian PEN:

“Dear colleagues,

    let me express on behalf of The Central Library of the Faculty of Arts of the Comenius University our sincerely thank you for the books gift for „The International PEN Library”.     We do really appreciate your generosity and willingness to support project of the creation of „The Pen Library” at Slovakia.

Daniela Gondova, director.”

Many thanks to the members of English PEN who have sent books to the library.
