The power and Importance of words and storytelling in today's society is the core purpose of the annual literary World of Words book festival.

By hosting an annual symposium promoting debate, sharing discussions with the world, and donating surplus funds to charitable organisations, WoW Gstaad's goal is quite simple: to remind today's society about the importance of literature and its role in today's modern world.

This year, WOW is gearing up for their 3rd edition of the festival, 25-25 this June 2023, for which they have gathered a powerhouse of talents such as Mick Herron, Will Smith, Tamzin Merchant, François-Henri Désérable, Giuliano da Empoli (Le Mage du Kremlin), Sloane Crosley, Jay Melnerney (Bright Lights Big City), Valeria Luiselli and Frank Wynne.

Each presenter's on-stage conversation and reading will be recorded and published on after the event, and although the authors hail from French, German, and English-speaking countries, the presentations will be conducted in English in order to reach the widest audience possible.


For the very first time, this year, WoW Gstaad offers a public event (free access) on Sunday, 25th June, on the Gstaad Promenade.


"People sometimes overlook the importance of literature to children and adults alike in comforting, educating, and inspiring us," said Saanenland Commune President Tony von Grünigen last year. "We are proud that Gstaad can be a mouthpiece for reminding the world of those benefits and spreading happiness."
