Some forty books written by Czech writers and translated into English, Korean, Filipino, Bikolano, Shona and Ndebele were donated to University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) library by the Consulate General of the Czech Republic.

It will add more titles to library´s wide collection of books by Czech authors.

The selection covers all periods of Czech literature - from classics (Karel Čapek, Pavel Kohout, Jaroslav Seifert) to contemporary writers (Martin Vopěnka, Petra Procházková, Bianca Bellová), from genre literature (Ondřej Neff, Julie Nováková, Jan Kotouč) to fairy tales and children´s literature (Lucie Lomová, Renáta Fučíková, Alena Ježková).

As there is a significant Philippine community living in wider Los Angeles area, there are also a few books by Czech writers translated into Filipino, Bikolano, Waray and Minasbate. Additionally two Czech titles in Ndebele and Shona (two main languages of Zimbabwe) and one in Korean were also donated.
