5th International Book Fair of Thesaloniki

The time has come again for the International Book Fair of Thessaloniki, one of the major literary events of the year, to open for us a door to the magical world of books. As usual, we are actively involved in designing and setting up the major stands for the show, namely the thematic area (this year dedicated to the political books), the Greek National Book Centre stand, the Children's corner, the amphitheatres, the teenager's library, an exhibition area for political posters, and the resting areas. All major Greek publishers will be there with stands, to promote their finest books. For the very first time, there will be a country guest of honour: this year it will be France, so there will be lots of connected activities around this.

There will be 150 events from every day from 10.00 to 21.00 (Saturday 22.00) in this four-day celebration of books:
  • literary meetings of writers from Greece and abroad; book presentations
  • special tributes
  • seminars - conferences – round tables
  • professional seminars
  • parallel events in the city
The theme of this year’s exhibition, political books, will involve a book exhibition, an exhibition of political posters, as well as film and documentary screenings.

The Children’s Corner will include visits from school parties, meetings with authors and illustrators, workshops, theatrical and musical events, and a whole host of other events in the children’s and teenagers’ library.

I hope many of you will be able to visit, I will be happy to see you there! I will post photos from the Fair next week.


  1. Ahh... is it monsoon season already? :)

    Let's hope it stays dry for a change...

  2. @d: the monsoons are usually connected to the outdoors book show and not the International Book Fair.

  3. είσαι ανταποκριτής τελικά. και δω και στο προηγούμενο της κάιλι. ευχαριστώ πολύ για τις ευχές. να 'σαι πάντα καλά με αγάπη και υγεία.

  4. Στα μπαράκια ξέρεις να με καλείς, στις εκθέσεις βιβλίων τπτ! Μπας και ξεστραβωθούμε βρε αδερφέ...

    [ούτε καν ειδικές δεν κάνουν οι άτιμοι όμως -παράπονο]

  5. @mad: η ειδική πρόσκληση που σου έστειλα μάλλον χάθηκε από τα ΕΛΤΑ - ήταν σε περγαμηνή και με βελούδινη κορδέλλα!

    Τι εννοείς ειδικές?

  6. οι φωτογραφίες σου με τα ρώσικα τσεχωφικά εξοχικά παλιότερα, με ξεκάνανε. Εκπληκτικές δεν μπορούσα να φανταστώ καλύτερη ονειροπόληση. :)
