Four countries - one language

The 6th Sofia International Literary Festival is set to take place from 11 until 16 December under the slogan “Four countries - one language”. The foreign segment of the programme will be entirely dedicated to German-language literature.

This year's edition of the literary event in Sofia will see over 80 participants, including some of the most famous writers and poets from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Lichtenstein.

In 2018 the programme features three new formats: Quick Literary Meetings, Sofia International Literary Festival Presents, and Secret Poetry Reading. Two exhibitions showing illustrations based on themes explored by German-language authors will be presented on the stage of the literary festival in addition to a selection of art books.

The festival and the book fair are organised by the Bulgarian Book Association. The events are also in partnership with the Frankfurt Book Fair and Goethe-Institut Bulgaria and are realised with financial support from Germany's Federal Foreign Office.
