2017BIBF Literary Salons——Speaking the Global Language of Literature 2017/8/4


As the 2017 BIBF prepares to welcome publishing industry representatives from 89 countries around the world to Beijing, the Literary Salons held from August 20-27 will provide platforms to showcase the best of Chinese and international literary talent and unite writers and readers in the global language of literature.

Taking center stage will be some of China’s cutting-edge contemporary literary voices including Cao Wenxuan, Feng Tang, Lu Min, Liu Zhenyun, Xi Chuan, Yu Hua among others. And they will be joined by a fascinating selection of leading novelists, poets, children’s writers, illustrators, translators and sinologists from more than 10 nations around the world, including Czech, France, Germany, Iran, Italy, Sweden.

Together they will present us with a delectable literary banquet that will include a wide range of readings, discussions, launches, illustrator events, storytelling sessions, screenings and more.

As we welcome these countries to China – and to the vibrant Chinese literary scene – the Literary Salon sessions shall bring together writers and readers to engage in cultural discussions, to embrace the beauty of the written word in its many forms, and to communicate in the universal language of literature.

Please pull up a chair and join us for this delightful, Beijing literary feast!
