Books, books and more books at the Vienna book festival!
Book enthusiasts and passionate readers will once again be spoiled by choice at this international book fair happening over 4 story-filled days at the Messe Wien, and many other locations around the city. The organisers promise the event to be bigger and better than last year, and more international than ever! So pack your reading glasses and warm up your fingers for some serious page-turning this month (or clicking if you read your literature on a e-book). There are many readings and discussions on the agenda so you might want to plan ahead and choose whatever sparks your interest.
Plus: The “Lange Nacht der Bücher” (long night of books) on Wednesday evening will feature a live gig by Fuzzman, a poetry slam, a Vienna quiz, a presentation of the new works by authors Michael Köhlmeier and Dirk Stermann, and many more thrilling things for book nerds.
