Norway is the Guest of Honour at the Book Fair in Warsaw 26 – 29 May 2022.
30 authors from Norway are coming to Warsaw and will feature in 50 literary events during four days at the Palace of Culture and Science.
You will find several series in our literary program: The daily program in the Norwegian tent will be kicked off with brave children and young adults’ literature. You will meet some of the best authors and illustrators from Norway. In “The Green Hour”, you will meet authors writing about nature, environment and travelling. In the series “Domestic Dilemmas”, you get an insight in Norwegian society and current issues, through fiction, and in “The Mysteries of Man” and “The Crime Hour” you will also get a glimpse inside the mind.
The program offer insight into the future and also the past: “The Classics’ Hour” and “WW2 in Norway” give you an introduction to two of Norway’s Nobel Prize Laureates and in World War II in Norway. Looking to our present day, we offer the series “Poetry Hour” including Ukrainian poetry, “European Feminists Anno 2022” and “European Literature Today”.
