First Newsletter for BookCrossing Convention Oslo

We have copied this great idea from the organizers of the UK conventions/unconventions, and will issue newsletters for the BookCrossing Convention in Oslo on a monthly basis – or more often if needed – to inform and remind you of this and that.

Many bookcrossers have decided to put their skis on, to slide right down to Oslo in April 2017!

We are now 103 participants (including 5 children) from 15 countries.

You can now sign up for the Early Arrivals dinner at Heim St.Hanshaugen on Thursday

The convention team has made some slight changes to the detailed schedule in September-November.

  • We have cancelled the Harry Hole Guided Walk on Sunday due to limited interest for this option, and a requirement for minimum participants, please register for the Harry Hole Guided Walk on Friday if you want to walk in Harry Holes footsteps.
  • We have included an Early Arrivals dinner at Heim St.Hanshaugen on Thursday.  There are 30 spots at 19:00 and 30 spots at 20:30. Remember to sign up if you want to join the dinner.

You can find the updated schedule here:
