Literature has always had a way of bringing people together.The Romanian Presidency of the Council of the EU, together with local partners (Muntpunt Grand Café, Snug Harbour, Waterstones Brussels, Brussels Writers’ Circle), has developed projects for this exact purpose. 
 
One of the best occasions was the meeting on Thursday, April 11, with two highly talented Romanian writers, Claudiu M. Florian,laureate of the European Prize for Literature 2016and Irina Dobrescu, author and illustratorof children’s books, founding member of the Romanian Illustrators Club, in the relaxing atmosphere provided by the Snug Harbor project and hosted by the Muntpunt Grand Café in Brussels.
