International Book Festival Budapest will take place between April 20-23 this year. Held for the 24th time, the festival is a recognized event of the international world of books, and one of the most important professional and intellectual forums of the region.
In 2017, the book festival awaits its visitors at Millenáris, which provides a rich cultural milieu, a modern atmosphere, an even smarter exhibition area and very good accessibility.
The festival will host nearly 150 exhibitors and 500 programs, including book presentations, signings, concerts and discussions. Guest of honor will be Turkish Nobel prize laureate Orhan Pamuk, whose 1982 debut novel is to be published for the first time in Hungarian this year. Countries of honor this year will be the Visegrad countries, Poland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
International Book Festival Budapest traditionally invites the most renowned authors of the world, so expect to see some big literary names in attendance. The award ceremony of Budapest Grand Prize and the on-stage conversation with the prize-winner will also be a special event of this year's festival.
