From Friday to Sunday after Ascension Day, Solothurn becomes the literary meeting point of Switzerland. More than 80 authors and translators from Switzerland and abroad are invited to Solothurn by the program commission and various program groups with their new publications in the fields of prose, poetry, spoken word, graphic novels and translation.
In addition to classical readings, the program also includes discussion rounds, panels, talks, workshops, and playful formats. The Solothurn Literature Days also include the Children's and Young People's Literature Days (JuKiLi), where authors and illustrators from the Swiss children's and young people's book scene present their new publications to many school classes in the form of readings and workshops. Other educational projects complement the program.
On the Wednesday evening before the Solothurn Literature Days, the Swiss Federal Literature Prizes are awarded in Solothurn, and on the Saturday during the Solothurn Literature Days, the Swiss Children's and Young People's Book Prize is awarded. The official opening of the Solothurn Literature Days takes place on Ascension Thursday.
The detailed program will be published on www.literatur.ch one month before the festival.
