Through our calendar of events you can choose the events of the 15th ilb by day, section, or venue. Information for the 15th ilb is not yet available. Please look again at the end of this month for the first fixed dates.
Literatures of the World
The selection for Literatures of the World is made by the festival’s organisers, supported by an international network of curators and friends, and by the jurors, internationally renowned experts in the literature of their regions. The current guest authors of the DAAD’s Berlin Artists’ Programme will also receive invitations. This festival section allows audiences to get to know not only world-renowned authors, but also fascinating new discoveries from the fields of prose and poetry.
International Children´s and Young Adult Literature
In the International Children’s and Youth Literature section authors and illustrators from all over the world will be presenting their texts and illustrations in readings, workshops, school projects and talks.
In the programme section Specials, the ilb presents projects on particular topics as well as smaller, special events.
In the section Reflections authors, journalists and international experts from various specialist areas will all be voicing their opinions in discussions and talks on current political, social and cultural topics from Eastern Europe. Many of the festival’s authors will be provided an additional podium here in order to answer any questions.
Speak, Memory
In the Speak, Memory festival section, German and international authors of the past decades and centuries – including the famous, the obscure and the forgotten - will be remembered in a combination of readings and talks. This year, some of the most important authors will be presented.
