Munich Literature Festival
November 13, 2019 - December 1, 2019
Munich celebrates the tenth anniversary of its literary festival for 18 days this November. The Literature Festival in Munich consists of forums and authors, in association with the Munich Book Fair and the festival program of the Literaturhaus Munich with the market of independent publishers. The awards for the Geschwister-Scholl Prize and the LiteraVision television award will also be presented during the literature festival. The curator program forum reinvents itself every year with a new theme. It is designed by changing writers who set individual priorities in cooperation with Literaturhaus. Jan Wagner followed in 2018 with his motto Beautiful Babel. European literatures as the ninth curator presents Doris Dörrie, Elke Schmitter, Albert Ostermaier, Clemens Meyer, Dagmar Leupold, Thea Dorn, Matthias Politycki and Ilija Trojanow. For two and a half weeks, (inter-) national authors meet to explore non-fiction, literature, music, classics, thrillers, bookbinding, writing workshops and more.
