Authors' Reading Month is a Central European literary festival held since the year of 2000, involving four countries as of now (Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia). In 2017, Writers' House was the co-organizer of Georgia Guest of Honour program at Authors' Reading Month festival together with the main manager, publishing house VetrneMlyny.
31 Georgian authors participated in the festival. Their texts have been translated into the Czech, Slovakian, Polish and Ukrainian languages.
155 events in five cities (Brno and Ostrava (Czech Republic); Kosice (Slovakia); Wroclaw (Poland); Lvov (Ukraine)) of four European countries were held in the framework of Authors' Reading Month. Authors were presented in front of large audiences at reading evenings; there they met readers, journalists, publishers, translators, and other people involved in the literary process. Each event was dedicated to the reading of one Georgian and one Czech, Slovakian, Polish or Ukrainian literary work.
During the festival, 16 authors in collaboration with another writer or poet participated in the project.

Participation of a selected country as a guest of honour in Authors' Reading Month is a one-time case, therefore the internal evaluation was made to be considered for the future projects that will be organized outside of the country
