18.03.2010 - Celebrate Books in All Shapes and Sizes at the Paris Book Fair

The movers and shakers of the international publishing world would be making their way to another exciting chapter of the Paris Book Fair from 26th to 31st March 2010. This year’s event has a special significance as it celebrates its 30th anniversary as one of the leading cultural consumer events in Europe. The fair brings together hundreds of
publishers, booksellers, librarians, editors, teachers and the general public under one roof where they get the opportunity to network, watch book signings by some of the world’s literary stars, and attend meetings and conferences arranged by the organizers. Paris hotels are opening their doors to welcome members of the literary world and the general public.

The Paris Book Fair 2010 showcases some of the best talents in the publishing world. It is also one of the best places to spot fresh talents as it highlights authors and publishers in all categories, as well as providing the smaller publishing houses the opportunity to gain some exposure with the rest of the industry players and the public in general. Despite the gloomy economic environment last year, more than 180,000 people visited the fair with the meetings and conferences reporting a healthy number of attendees. This year, more visitors are anticipated with the variety of programmes that are oriented towards families and the younger readers.

Paris Book Fair is a must for all book lovers and those in search of the latest literary talents. It’s certainly going to be an exciting event this year with thirty foreign and sixty French authors taking centre stage and presenting their work to the public. They include Umberto Eco from Italy, Peter James from the UK, Andrei Kurkov from Ukraine and Nedim Gursel from Turkey.
