BUDAPEST BOOK WEEK TO FEATURE 170 EXHIBITORS, OVER 1,000 BOOK SIGNING EVENTS

 

This year’s Book Week festival will present 170 exhibitors at 150 stands in Budapest’s central Vörösmarty and Vigadó Squares and on the nearby Danube embankment between June 13 and 16, the organisers said. The event organised for the 95th time will also feature over a thousand book signing occasions and roundtable discussions, book reviews, concerts and lectures, they said. Publishers will release several hundred new titles including 90 new poetry books, the president of the association of Hungarian publishers and booksellers (MKKE) told a press conference, adding that more and more children’s and young adult books are being released each year. “Statements claiming that people and younger generations do not read these days is simply not true,” Katalin Gál said.
