You probably already know that citybooks make for ideal travel literature: you can download these short stories, essays and poems for free as e-books and audiobooks, and so in no time – and without adding any weight to your suitcase – you’ll have plenty of literary luggage for the long summer ahead. Or discover exciting cities in Europe and beyond from the comfort of your easy chair, through the citybooks by range of international authors. Get a head start and read news about Ghent, Ypres, Lisbon and Jakarta here.

Prefer something more active? Sanne De Wilde’s photography exhibition runs for the whole summer in the STAM, with a closing event the 28 August. The exhibition not only features her citybooks photos, but also the stories about Ghent by Annelies Verbeke, Wim Brands, Àngeles Caso, Karl Schlögel and Niña Weijers as audiobooks. Weijers was the fifth and final guest in the city of Artevelde, and her citybook Eclipse will be previewed in the literary publication Das Magazin.
