The scent of fresh print mingles with the aroma of autumn as Krakow momentarily transforms into the literary heart of Poland. From October 26th to 29th, book enthusiasts from Poland and beyond will unite at EXPO Krakow to celebrate the 26th edition of the International Book Fair.

Engaging with Literature in the Heart of Krakow

The EXPO Krakow hall will not only feature the sale of the latest titles but also host numerous author meetings, discussions, lectures, and signing sessions. The city invites both adults and younger readers for this occasion, offering a rich array of children's and young adult literature.

100 Years of Wisława Szymborska

This year's edition is also special due to the 100th birthday of one of Poland's most esteemed poets, Wisława Szymborska. Her works will hold a significant spot in the fair's program, with the event's motto drawing inspiration from her words - "So much world all around the world at once".
