Pula Festival of Books and Authors

November 29, 2019 - December 9, 2019

The book and author fair in Pula responds to contemporary literature and social complexity of a country that, from a Croatian perspective, is quiet and alone in dealing with its multilayered features: from multilingualism, through ethnic motifs. With a fair theme of freedom and a regional focus on Macedonia, creating an transnational discourse between these two Balkan states. More than 200 publishers from Croatia and other countries will exhibit at the Fair, with hundreds of books and programs, including up to 60,000 visitors altogether. Talks, conferences, tribunes and roundtables, exhibitions, concerts and theatrical performances feature dozens of voices, many of which have become part of the cultural memory of the city such as: Umberto Eco, Orhan Pamuk, Péter Esterházy, Luko Paljetak. The program of the Fair centers around multiculturalism, affirmation of internal and European regionalism, and the maintenance and promotion of the peculiarities of literary culture. Never fully classified, always in dialogue, the creators and guests of the Fair meet in Pula, the marginal point of that social UUIreality, clinging to the catalog of ideals being shared – namely freedom.
