Experience literary diversity in the age of globalisation: this is where it's possible. Arabic poets meet American short story writers, South Korean poets encounter their Russian colleagues, South African novelists rub shoulders with a new generation of Albanian writers.

Fascinating new discoveries stand up alongside recognised masters of world literature, the new emerges, and interconnections become visible when, in 180 events over 11 days, 150 authors provide glimpses into new and traditional streams in world literature. Prose, poetry, conversations with authors and political discussions, children's and youth literature, film adaptations of literature – the ilb is a vital, polyglot forum, staged by and for literary enthusiasts.

Ten years of a miracle
