Book Platform in Wachau

25-27 October 2013 in Wachau, Austria
From 25 to 27 October 2013, for the 5th successive year the Wachau Literature Days hosted writers, publishers, critics and cultural organizations from all over Europe for three days of debates and readings at the heart of the wine-producing region of Austria. Parallel to the literature fest, the Backflow conference focused more on the publishing markets and the conditions under which literature is being produced and disseminated. The conference's panel and workshop aimed at examining new developments in small and "peripheral" book markets, the interactions between the large global players and the local, the potential role of new digital innovations for cultural communication across borders.

Yana Genova of Next Page gave a presentation, partly based on the experience of Book Platform's studies on book sectors, on the social meaning and the role of shifting reading habits, new digital access and the future of the funding policies for small book markets.
