The Guest of Honour this year is Brazil and after Sunday’s ceremony at the fair, all eyes will be on Finland for a year!
Finland will hold its first press conference at the book fair on Thursday 10 Oct, Finnish Literature and Aleksis Kivi Day. Finland’s Minister of Culture and Sports Paavo Arhinmäki will open the press conference.
On Sunday 13 at 15.30 the Brazilian pavilion there will be the traditional “handover ceremony”: Brazil will cede the role of Guest of Honour to Finland at a warm and informal occasion.
The Finnish stand will be at 5.0 A 79. See you all there!
