Sweden will be the guest of honor at the 22nd International Book Fair in Krakow

We are happy to announce that Sweden will be the guest of honour at the 22nd International Book Fair in Krakow, Poland’s largest publishing trade fair. The fair takes place 25-28 October 2018. Sweden’s participation, which will include authors, illustrators, books and talks, is organised by The Embassy of Sweden in Warsaw. Please get in touch with them if you have ideas or thoughts.

Sweden's Ambassador to Poland Stefan Gullgren says to Polish TT- PAP that the Swedish side "are pleased that for the first time, our country will be the honorary guest at the prestigious International Book Fair in Krakow."

As the diplomat added, Swedish books - from children's literature to crime thrillers to non-fiction stories to self-help books - are well-known in Poland and notable for their "pertinent social commentary, concern for human rights and the environment, as well as humour."

"We aim to present an innovative, open and creative Sweden," Gullgren stated. "We are convinced that the fair will represent an excellent opportunity for many inspiring meetings," he added, "and display the familiar, as well as the unknown face of Sweden and Swedish literature."
