Welcome to the Munich Literature Festival
The Munich Literaturfest consists of the curator program forum:autoren, the Munich Book Show and the program of the Literaturhaus München with the market of independent publishers Andere Bücher braucht das Land ("Our country needs other books").
The literary program forum:autoren is curated by a series of writers and organized at their own discretion. This means that every year it gets a completely new, individual signature look: After "lokal:global" ("local:global") with Ilija Trojanow, Matthias Polityickis's "Welt auf Deutsch" ("World in German") and a romantic journey "Hinaus ins Ungewisse" ("Out to the Unknown") with Thea Dorn, Munich author Dagmar Leupold is now exploring "Stadt Land Fluss: Geschichten von der Gegenwart" ("City Country River: Stories about Now").
The 54th Munich Book Show, that's 15 hours a day for 18 days free admission to the largest regional book exhibition. Every year, for two and a half weeks, there are (inter)national authors to meet. Non-fiction, literature, music, children's books, mysteries, book binding, writing workshops – there's some kind of event for everybody.
The festival program at the Literaturhaus München presents top-notch readings and the market of independent publishers Andere Bücher braucht das Land ("Our country needs other books") and continues its successful Backstage series at schools. The cooperation with Ludwig Maximilians Universität Munich goes in a new direction with a symposium by students for students.
