“Bildung and Cultivation” will be the main theme for the 2017 Göteborg Book Fair. Finnish literature will also play a prominent part in conjunction with Finland’s centennial as an independent nation, as well as Irish literature in the theme “Voices from Ireland”.

No other book fair in the world offers such a comprehensive seminar program as the Göteborg Book Fair. Writers, scholars, Nobel Laureates, politicians and thinkers from around the world appear in readings, talks and high profile debates. In addition to the seminars, there are events on the different stages and activities in the exhibition stands.
