"Literature Is One Of The Most Interesting And Significant Expressions Of Humanity." -P. T. Barnum. It provides growth, strengthens our minds and gives us the ability to think outside the box. It fulfils our human need for friends and family, the goodness of compassion and empathy, trust, or the realization of imperfection. We learn that imperfection is not always bad and that normal can be boring. We learn that life must be lived to the fullest. We need literature in order to connect with our own humanity. This is what the eighth edition of the Big Book Festival is all about. You will have an opportunity to meet guests from many countries, take part in unique meetings, listen to fascinating lectures, watch performances, and happenings. It will take place in the Old Mokotów district, at Big Book Cafe, Centrum Łowicka and Władysław Broniewski's Museum.
