Gothenburg UNESCO City of Literature
Gothenburg as a literary field
Gothenburg is developing as a city where we read to our children, energize artistic freedom and safeguard freedom of expression and meet in intercultural exchanges – with literature as a key to social sustainability. By joining forces and gaining international recognition, we are strengthening Gothenburg and West Sweden as a place where it is good to be–and to become–a reader and a writer.
