The Campus Book Festival is the second biggest book festival in Malta, a collaborative effort between the NBC, UM Depart- ments, and student organisations to attract primarily tertiary stu- dents and the general public. The Campus Book Festival will be bringing together the publishers Faraxa Publishing, Horizons, Kite Group, Merlin Publishers, Klabb Kotba Maltin/ Midsea Books, Marvellous Malta and Malta University Press, as well as Mallia & D'Amato Booksellers, Inizjamed, Għaqda tal-Malti - Università, Malta Libraries, and Creative Europe Desk Malta. Fresh faces and a wider book selection Visitors will be able to enjoy a wider book selection on sale thanks to new collaborations forged on the occasion of Kampus Kotba. First-time exhibitors Mall- ia & D'Amato Booksellers, known for their loyal customer base and book curation, will be contribut- ing with their selection of world fiction and poetry books. Following their participation in the 2021 Malta Book Festi- val, Malta University Press – the scholarly publisher of the Uni- versity of Malta – will also be at the Campus Book Festival with their high-quality peer-reviewed academic works on Malta and the Mediterranean, which have a particular focus on the humanities and social sciences. The recently-established Mar- vellous Malta will also be present- ing festival visitors with its first publication in a series of photo- graphic books showcasing the natural beauty of Malta. Exhibitors at the Festival will be providing a book selection span- ning locally and internationally published novels, short-story and poetry collections, non-fiction, drama, translated works and YA literature, as well as works of re- search, Melitensia and more. Also, Kampus Kotba is an un- missable opportunity for students and the general public to catch up with the latest publications while also attending a discussion of interest from the Festival's pro- gramme. The National Book Council has also collaborated with Creative Europe Desk Malta on inviting the Festival's international guest: Irish author and winner of the Eu- ropean Union Prize for Literature in 2019 Jan Carson. The participation of Jan Carson at the Festival is a collaborative effort between the National Book Council and Creative Europe Desk Malta. Carson will participate in a book- club session and later join fellow Maltese EUPL winner Lara Calle- ja in conversation. In renewed col- laboration with Inizjamed, Kam- pus Kotba will be closing with an Open Mic - a space dedicated to readings and performances held on Friday evening. The full events programme, in- cluding book presentations, book club sessions, panel discussions on literature, philosophy and pub- lishing, and interviews with local and international authors, are be- ing published in the coming days.
