The Freedom Book Fair is a five-day event centred around freedom of expression and is much more than just a book fair. There will be various activities over the course of the five days, such as book presentations, cultural evenings, movie screenings and panel discussions. The Book Fair is a place where writers, journalists, human right activists, artists and civilians from all over the world can discuss, connect, debate, initiate a dialogue, celebrate their work and raise awareness for their cause.

Bergamin Bookstore & More

Bergamin Bookstore & More is an independently owned non-fiction online bookstore in The Netherlands with a real physical cultural appearance and a lot of events, readings, seminars, workshops, open discussion rounds or fireside chats on most beautiful locations like restaurants or theatres. Although we are geographically based in The Netherlands, we feel ourselves as world citizens free from national borders and we can offer books & services all over the World.

Books we have the passion and enthusiasm for:

Our books have integrity which tackle consensuses head on, whether those concern colonialism, racism or politics of various stripes. We’re not afraid to go against the grain if we think the book is a real contribution, it’s saying something fresh. Every year amazing, beautiful – yes, great – books are published that deserve to be promoted. These are especially books in the field of African Studies, Islamic and Middle Eastern Studies, South Asian Studies and War, Conflict and International Relations, History, Religion and humanitarian affairs mostly in English, but also in Dutch, German, French as well as Spanish, Italian and Arabic. The books on our website are reviewed regularly in high profile media outlets worldwide, including The Economist, The Sunday Times, Financial Times, The Guardian, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Foreign Affairs and others; in German by Die Zeit, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ), and in French for example by Le Monde.
