  • The annual Book Fair in Gothenburg starts today, this year with a mix of events online and on site to make it a "hybrid" fair.

  • The traditional literary talks and discussions will take place in front of a small studio audience, but will also be broadcast online, with a chance to see the events afterwards.

  • "There are many international guests participating in this year's book fair, but in another way," says Oscar Ekström, head of programming for the fair.
