Open the door and turn a page! Kirjan talo (The Book House) is home to literary figures as well as an association for the promotion of reading and writing, located along the River Aura shores.

Kirjan talo operates as an office space, a place to organise events, a classroom, a centre for leading workshops and a year-round networking venue. Kirjan talo is the home of many literary associations and a workplace for those in the creative industry.

Kirjan talo organises courses on writing, from poetry to prose, suitable for both newcomers as well as more experienced writers. Creative writing and stories can begin at a young age but is a great hobby whatever age you start. And best of all, writing is something you can do anywhere!

Kirjan talo is actively involved in organising various literary events and projects, both independently and collaboratively, utilising techniques of the written word in all its artistic forms. Order these creative services from Kirjan talo, including the Murder Mystery Adventure, in which children and adults alike can use their creativity.

You can also rent space at Kirjan talo for your own events, or just visit to discuss the cultural of literary life in Turku.
