Book World Prague 2024

23 - 26 May 2024 Výstaviště Praha Holešovice

For the 29th edition in 2024, the long-term programme "Das Buch" - German-language literature - has been chosen as the guest of honor. The project is jointly prepared by the Goethe-Institut of the Czech Republic, the Austrian Cultural Forum in Prague and the Embassy of the Swiss Confederation.

We will present a wealth of contemporary German-Language Literature across genres such as fiction, comics, children's literature, philosophy, etc. Our common goal will be to cover current themes that reflect the state of society, achievements and tendencies of German-Language Literature, as well as themes that reflect the specific ties of the Czech Republic to its neighbor countries.

We will also engage in activities commemorating the centenary of Franz Kafka's death.

The motto of the current edition, which will be the philosophical line of the festival reflecting on the purpose of literatures and how they change our inner life, is Kafka's quote "A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us."

We look forward to seeing you in May 2024.
