The 23rd Book Festival Budapest begins today with neighboring Slovakia as the guest of honor. Many authors who have appeared in B O D Y and Literalab will be present, including Uršula Kovalyk, Viťo Staviarsky, Pavel Vilikovský, Jana Juráňová and Slovak translator Julia Sherwood.
There are also, of course, numerous Hungarian writers participating in the festival, such as B O D Y-published Gábor Schein.
The festival program looks quite interesting but what I like best is that besides a download link and a generic audience photo, the only thing on the website program page are the words: “We reserve the right to change the programme.” That doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.
