    These have been five days of high intensity where we have been joined by over 8,900 people. Five days of literary exchanges, of debates on the future of journalism, on Europe, on the legacy of W. G. Sebald and the anniversary of Alice in Wonderland. We have enjoyed the attendance by over 150 contributing participants from 19 countries and have organised over 80 activities and 24 workshops at the BookCamp. We screened 40 feature films, documentaries and short films via Alpha Channel, and we discovered new television series, new authors and new forms of writing, publishing and reading books.
