The National Book Council and Għaqda tal-Malti – Università are proud to present the fifth edition of the Campus Book Festival, which will be held on 21, 22 and 23 March, kicking off daily at 9 am with back-to-back activities planned until 4 pm. On Friday the activities will continue until late in the evening.

The purpose of the festival is to promote literature across the board while, at the same time, giving publishers and book distributors a space in which they can sell and promote their publications with a mature audience, such as university students. A vast programme of activities will be put up during the festival, ranging from workshops and films related to literature, to readings and interviews with authors, painters and illustrators – as well as language discussions, guided tours around the University Library, live music and a number of collaborations with other organisations.

The special guest this year is Jasmin B. Frelih, the Slovenian author whose novel Na/Pol (In/Half) earned him the European Prize for Literature in 2016. He will be joining us on Campus for special events scheduled on each of the three days, with a creative writing workshop on 21 March, a discussion with Maltese writer and poet Immanuel Mifsud on Slovenian literature on 22 March, and a interview with Noel Tanti on 23 March. On Friday afternoon, Inizjamed will be contributing an Open Mic session featuring Frelih.

The festival will close on Friday night with live music by Cryptic Street and Fuzzhoneys.

The publishers and distributors participating in the festival are BDL, EDE BOOKS, FARAXA BOOKS, HORIZONS, MIDSEA BOOKS, PJATTAFORMA and SENSIELA KOTBA SOĊJALISTI (SKS). These publishers and distributors will be selling their books at their stand and will be organising their own book launch events.

The planned activities are held by HoASA and Marisa Attard, Dr Bernard Micallef and Dr Olvin Vella, in collaboration with the University Library, Glen Calleja along with the Department of Maltese within G.F.
