Literature is a journey

What will the world look like in 100 years? The organizers encourage participation in the national social campaign "Heart of Time Capsule", which is a literary and artistic competition, and everyone can participate in it, regardless of age. The competition task is "Travel imagination in the future! Your town, our world for a hundred years? Tell about it!". During the International Book Fair in Krakow®, art and literary works will be collected depicting the vision of the world of the future, which will then be closed in the emerging mobile Capsule of Time in the next 100 years.

Literature is an adventure

This year's Special Guest will be Germany who will present his literature under the slogan "German Stories". Thanks to cooperation with the Goethe Institut we will discover Krakow through the eyes of german writers. This will be possible thanks to organized walks in the footsteps of famous writers and their works.

People with strong nerves will surely be interested in traveling in the footsteps of the serial killer Karol Cat, called a vampire from Krakow.

By reading, I could live more intensely - Carlos Ruiz Zafón

The slogan of this year's edition commits. Reading is inseparably connected with a more intense experience every day. That is why the program will include meetings with outstanding guests, trainings, workshops, and debates that stimulate the imagination. Their goal is to show that reading is a gate to learning about the world, experiencing unforgettable moments and celebrating life.

Image and word

This year, the organizers want to appreciate the debuting polish illustrators. Especially for them, a wall will be created where they can glue the work and leave a business card. This should make it easier for creators to contact publishing houses.

Let's experience this journey together. See you in EXPO Krakow!
