On 22–25 September, publishers, agents, readers and writers all head to Gothenburg on the Swedish west coast. Göteborg Book Fair is a unique place for getting to know Scandinavian literature and culture. “I think the book fair is more important than ever. We really want to stand up for the importance of how future generations are able to take on longer texts. It is crucial for learning, university studies – and simply for the future,” says Maria Källsson, CEO at Göteborg Book Fair. “Literature also brings an understanding of other cultures, environments, groups and religions.”
