The most important event in Poland dedicated to literature, a joint project organised by the City of Cracow, the Cracow Festival Office and the Tygodnik Powszechny Foundation.

For almost a week, Cracow is the host to some of the most eminent figures of world literature and literary events are accompanied by screenings of films related to literature, exhibitions, concerts and lectures, constituting additional, non-literary contexts for the presented authors and literary works. Among invited writers there are winners of prestigious awards and authors of international bestsellers – high literature meets popular works here, journalism, film, theatre and music. During the previous two editions of the Festival, readers had the opportunity to meet authors such as: Pascal Quignard, Etgar Keret, Marjane Satrapi, Per Olov Enquist, Claude Lanzmann, Herta Müller, Amos Oz, Jean Hatzfeld and László Krasznahorkai, as well as a select group of Polish writers and reporters, including Wojciech Jagielski, Maciej Zaremba and Mariusz Szczygieł. After just the first edition of the Festival, it has become a recognisable brand and symbol of a big international literature event. It is reported on by the most important Polish and European media. The Festival is recommended by newspapers and magazines such as the British Guardian and the Swiss Le Courrier. The opinion-forming Polityka weekly listed it in the prestigious group of 10 cultural events in Poland considered to be World League, and the lifestyle Malemen magazine simply called it “the literary salon of the year”.
