The literary fair Göteborg Book Fair, the most relevant of Scandinavia, has been organized from 22 to 25 September. This year, the Basque author Karmele Jaio will attend the fair and be part of the official program, thanks to the support of the Etxepare Basque Institute.

On September 23, the author will participate in a round table with the writers Delphine Vigan (France) and Kristina Sandberg (Sweden): "Whose Rules: Mental, Physical, Political". After that, she will offer a poetry reading. The following day, the writer will lead the symposium "Women in Contemporary Basque Fiction Literature".She will analyze the case of Basque women writers through Karmele Jaio’s work. Her writing proposes a deep reflection on the role of women, a deep resistance to traditional “duties” like motherhood, with a style that tries to deconstruct a literary language that is usually foreign to women.

The Göteborg Book Fair is a four day long literary festival, a fantastic mix of books, authors, book-lovers, knowledge and joy. The days are filled with literary events, poetry readings, interesting discussions and debates on almost every conceivable topic. New books are presented at the many stages and exhibitors’ stands and deals are closed at the International Rights Centre.
