Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 edition of the Conrad Festival will largely occur online, where evening meetings with writers will take place on the festival's digital platforms. Among the guests this year are Sigrid Nunez, Etgar Keret, Marek Bieńczyk, Roy Jacobsen, Karl-Markus Gauss, Kevin Barry, Magdalena Tulli, Bianca Bellová, Elif Shafak and many more. The theme to be explored and discussed during the 2020 festival is 'The Visible & the Invisible,' and it will attempt to provoke answers to such questions as: Is freedom the paramount value? Can a story change the world? Can memory save us? How do we deal with invisibility? What lies beyond the limit of words? Can memory be restored?
