The Literarisches Forum has set itself the goal of inspiring the Basel population to read more. It holds four readings each year, to which you are cordially invited.
Founded in 1969, the Forum's aim is to bring literature to life. In an effort to do so it holds readings in the most extraordinary venues, such as the Rhybadhüsli, the Bar Rouge in the Messeturm or at the Rhine port. The texts are compiled by the members of the Forum and read by two actors.
