A city is not built by bricks, but by the stories of its inhabitants. Budapest belongs to all of us, our personal experiences make it the way we see and love it.
The Grand Novel Budapest is our story.
On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the unification of the capital, the Grand Novel Budapest will be published as a highlight of the Budapest Book Capital program series. 23 popular contemporary writers wrote the chapters of each district based on local history and civil legend collection, evoking the unique figures, locations and stories of this ever-changing metropolis even in their everyday life.
On behalf of the publisher, the Budapest Brand and its strategic partner, the Ervin Szabo Municipal Library, we respectfully invite you to the book’s launch event. Gergely Karacsony, the mayor of Budapest will give a welcome address followed by a series of talks with the actors of the creative process.
