1. Malta Book Festival 2021

The Malta Book Festival is the foremost book celebration in the country's cultural calendar. Annually, the MBF boasts an attendance rate of 40,000 visitors, the participation of more than 40 exhibitors, and offers extensive networking opportunities for industry professionals.

The international guest of the 2021 Malta Book Festival is world-renowned writer Irvine Welsh. The master author of dark, gritty, seedy no-nonsense 'say it like it is' Scottish culture novels, Welsh has been an influence on contemporary literature and an icon of the 1990s. Welsh shot to fame when he published the novel 'Trainspotting' in 1993, which was subsequently adapted into a film in 1996 by director Danny Boyle.

This year the Festival will be making use of an expanded exhibition space for publishers, booksellers and NGOs, and activity areas for the numerous book presentations and discussions.

Weekday mornings are dedicated to schoolchildren, introducing them to the magical and adventurous worlds of Malta's best children's authors, and ensuring a memorable experience with age-appropriate performances based on Terramaxka Prize winning works streamed straight to the classroom.

A €5 voucher redeemable at any of our exhibitors' online and MBF shops will be sent to each and every student that is registering to participate in this year's Festival, providing an opportunity for students to develop the skills to appreciate stories, encourage reading, and acquaint them with local publications.

While preparations for this year's Malta Book Festival are well underway, the National Book Council will be adhering to the national health authorities' directives on public gatherings to ensure the safest possible experience.
