History and Concept
Lviv Book Forum is an annual event happening for the 25th time this year. There are very few festivals in Ukraine that have such a long history. You honestly can say that this event grew up together with the country’s’ independence.
For a few days in September (19-23), Lviv’s center transforms into magical Book Town. The festival is not just about the sales of books. It is the atmosphere of creativity and cooperation that strikes here and magnetizes guests.
Why visit the Book Forum?
Literally, all Ukrainian publishing houses are working hard on getting latest and best books ready for the Book Forum. You can explore the book tents on the Liberty Avenue and some of the events for free. However, a multiple day entrance ticket, that can be purchased here, gives you an opportunity to get to the best workshops and lectures, and to the main building of the festival. Don’t forget about autograph sessions with writers, and poetry readings aimed to create a real literature mood.
The Book Forum’s purpose is not only to entertain but also to raise up important issues, mostly (but not limited to) the ones related to the publishing business. This year Focal Topic is ‘Market of Freedom.’ The festival events will teach a better understanding of copyright, public libraries, and many other related issues.
5000 professionals work on the Book Forum, so its 50 000 visitors were entirely happy and satisfied. Among the special guests, there are writers and publishing houses from 25 countries.
This year Forum will open with an unexpected event – Playboy&Beigbeder Party. This party will present an unusual book created by Playboy Ukraine editor-in-chief, and also rock with music and dances.
