2019 Taipei International Book Fair E-mail

As in previous years, Israel had a pavilion at the Taipei International Book Fair, which was held from 14 to 16 February at the Taipei World Trade Centre.

Widely recognised as one of the main book fairs in the world, the Taipei International Book Fair aims to promote international exchange, inspire advances in publishing, and advocate a reading culture.

The recent event attracted approximately 530,000 visitors, including international writers, award-winners and a host of celebrities. Many countries organise their own pavilions, and around 350 overseas publishers from 60 countries and 325 local players participate in the event. Many of the books featured at the Book Fair, including famous novels and books for children and young people, have been translated into Chinese.

This year the Israel pavilion had four themes: “Reading to Know Israel”; the “Reading Israel” lecture; “Missing the Literary”, paying tribute to Amos Oz, who passed away on 28 December 2018, and the Israel Bookstore Cafe.
