Literature Festivals Worldwide

From Culture.si

See below the list of book fairs, literature festivals, comic art festivals and art book festivals that featured also authors from Slovenia. The data source is the Culture.si database of worldwide events, collected since 2010.

Participation at a few book fairs round the world has been regularly supported by the Slovenian Book Agency that provides also grants for authors’ mobility. A network of Slovenian embassies as well as Slovenian language lectureships/departments at the 60 universities round the world offer support for literary events, too.

In case you miss the festival or author(s) presented abroad, please let us know (data required).
