period event
until 2009 Frisian Book Week
2010 - 2013 Frisian Book Month
2014 - now Swalk, Frisian on tour

The Frisian Book Week, Frisian Book Month and Swalk are annual events for the promotion of Frisian literature. They used to be organised by 'Stichting It Fryske Boek' (Foundation The Frisian Book). From 2010 all festivities are organised by Tresoar, the Frisian History and Literature Center. During these events buyers of Frisian books get a book gift for free.

Since 2004 this book gift is valid as a public transport dayrover in the province of Friesland and some parts of the province of Groningen. Since 2013 a special book for children, which can be bought for a small amount, is also valid.
