This weekend is the opening of Bücherfestival in Glatt

This weekend is so much about culture and literature for big and small. The Bücherfestival in Glatt (Link), from 6th to 28th of October, is a great cultural and social gathering for the whole family with panel talks, workshops, poetry slam and even more. Kids can meet their idols like Papa Moll, Globi, Emil and  Pitschi, and Greg from „Gregs Tagebuch“, and even try out the first in Switzerland walking bookworm.
