An anthology of European poetry, entitled Grand Tour, was published in March. The book, edited by Jan Wagner and Federico Italiano, contains poems from authors “from Albania to Cyprus”. Poets from the Czech Republic included in the anthology are Petr Borkovec, Milan Děžinský, Kateřina Rudčenková, Jakub Řehák, Jonáš Hájek, Ondřej Hanus, Štěpán Nosek a Kamil Bouška.

The book subtitled “Cestování po mladé evropské poezii” (Travelling around Young European Poetry, or Reisen durch die junge Lyrik Europas) is published by Hanser and, according to the annotation, is a follow up to the predecessors of these attempts, i.e. Museum moderní poezie (Museum of Modern Poetry, 1960) and Atlas nové poezie (Atlas of New Poetry, 1995).
