Description

Join writers from South Korea, the United States, Europe, the Middle East and Russia during this 300-event international festival that celebrates the written word in all of its forms with readings, events, children's activities and book sales. Thousands of poets and writers will read from their works during the festival, and there will be readings, concerts and film screenings in the meantime. However the festival is much more than a cross-cultural celebration, but also marks a place of great historical significance. Bebelplaz was witness to a dark time in German history; it was where book burnings took place during the Third Reich in 1933.
