Nordic literature in focus
This year, Nordic literature will be in focus at the Fair, where Nordic cooperation, welfare and green growth will be discussed with orientation towards the new Nordic region. The interest in Nordic literature is currently very popular all over the world and we are expecting many publishers and agents to come to the Book Fair this year. Take this unique opportunity to get to know the Scandinavian literature!

With the headline "Voices from Ireland" the Book Fair will also be visited by eight Irish authors.

The Göteborg Book Fair also offers many other interesting topics for discussion, and authors from all over the world. 398 seminars will be held during the four days that the fair lasts, with more than 800 participants from 22 countries altogether.

With more than 3000 items on the programme, over 2000 participating authors and lecturers and more than 900 exhibitors taking part in the Göteborg Book Fair, there are a lot of interesting things to cover.

Journalists at the Book Fair benefit from both inspiration and they also get a foundation for material and articles throughout the year.
