The Democracy Book Club: Helping Ukrainian Books and Booksellers (HUBB)

Event Date: January 28, 2023 2:00 pm

“Watching the devastation in Ukraine is heartbreaking. The bookselling and publishing community there has been devastated. I, along with a group of concerned literary friends, Askold Melnyczuk, Carolyn Forche, Christopher Merrill and Jane Unrue, founded Helping Ukrainian Books and Booksellers (HUBB) to directly support booksellers, editors, printers, warehouse workers, libraries and librarians, and others involved inthe publishing industry so that literary culture in Ukraine survives. You can check out our website – – for more information. Together we can make a difference.” – Mitchell Kaplan
