Gothenburg Book Fair 2009 Opens

Thursday sees the opening of the annual Gothenburg Book Fair. And this year marks the 25th anniversary of the biggest literary event in the Nordic region.

For the next three days the fair will be a Mecca for book lovers, publishers, librarians, writers, and anyone else involved in books and the book business.

This year’s fair is larger than ever before, with the focus on Spanish literature. There are also several other themes like Aids in literature and Sweden’s loss of Finland.
