Join us for three days of unlimited, joyous reading!

Big Book Festival, the international festival of reading and arts, is taking place for the seventh time.
The 2019 edition will last for three days throughout the weekend of 21st – 23rd June.

We will host 50 talks, discussions, workshops, games, shows and walks.
We will welcome authors from many countries.

Among our announced guests are:
Kate Brown (USA), Kapka Kassabova (Bulgaria), Arnon Grunberg (The Netherlands), Agus Morales (Spain), Catherine Blackledge (UK), Therese Bohman (Sweden), Radka Denemarkova (Czech), Helga Flatland (Norway), Hans Joachim Lang (Germany).

You’ll laugh, feel surprised and get excited. But most of all – you are welcome to enjoy reading and spending your quality time with books the way you like it.

This year’s edition called OUT OF THE BOX is about doing things differently, setting yourself for all kinds of literary pleasures, including the quilty ones. Forget about the bestsellers lists and what critics think. Forget what your friends say is a must read.

Feel like diving into a thriller? Or indulging in contemplating the passing of time with a slow read? Or maybe you really want to spend your afternoon with the pocket edition of „How to make relationships work“ handbook?

Well – let go of all the dos and don’ts, feel free to read what you want.

Big Book Festival likes innovation and sees literature both as a source of pleasure and an inspiring pattern of modern reality. We get together each year to celebrate reading in all it’s forms and flavours. We see no borders, no right or wrong ways of enjoying the world of letters.

As a travelling festival, for this year’s edition we chose an out of the box location – three exciting spots along Dąbrowskiego Street in Stary Mokotów – a lovely neighborhood with an artistic feel.

Find us at:

Dąbrowskiego 81 – Big Book Cafe, an all year round centre for literature
Łowicka 21 – Centrum Łowicka, local cultural hub
Dąbrowskiego 51 – Władysław Broniewski Museum, poet’s private house and museum
