At hourly intervals, classical readings by prominent authors will alternate with panel discussions. Literary events and topics from the fields of non-fiction and science will be on an equal footing.

In addition to readings, the book festival invites the public to talk with authors. Speedreadings will take place in the open air, and various workshops and participatory activities are being planned.

There will also be a varied program for children and young people, focusing on literature for children and young people. In addition to readings, workshops with hands-on activities are planned.

The Berlin Book Festival is sponsored by the Berlin Senate Department for Economic Affairs, Energy and Industry.
