In May each year, the World Heritage, the Örlogstaden Karlskrona and most exciting environments in Blekinge, become a meeting place for all the world’s writers. In beautiful premises, poets, philosophers, scientists and political activists encounter the public in rewarding conversations and debates.
Book and sea – Karlskrona’s international literature festival was held for the first time in 2017. The seed for Bok and Hav is the author Katarina Mazetti for. She got the idea during a visit to French Concarneau and their book festival Livre et more. Nowadays, the festival is run by project manager Gudrun Gardarsdottir and the association’s board with great support from volunteers and other partners.
In the 2019 edition, the third in the scheme, we offer author talks, readings and music that give new perspectives on both Book and Sea – in the broadest sense.
