23-27 August 2017
The 24th Beijing International Book Fair takes place at the Beijing Exhibition Centre from 23 to 27 August 2017.
The Beijing Fair is one of the most important fora for international meetings of publishers and authors on the Asian continent. The fair is annually attended by more than 200,000 visitors, who have the opportunity to see more than 2,000 stands from over 80 countries of the world. In addition to the abundant book production presentation, the fair also includes extensive cultural programmes held at the exhibition centre as well as at selected locations all over Beijing.
The Czech national stand, which is being prepared together with the Mixed Czech-Chinese Chamber of Mutual Cooperation and the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Beijing, will present not only the latest production for both children and adults but also books from the Albatros Media, Host and Galerie Zdeněk Sklenář publishers. Writers Iva Pekárková and Petr Stančík will be involved in the fair’s cultural programme as part of author’s programmes and panel discussions, and The Oddsockeaters, a film based on Galina Miklínová’s illustrations, will also be presented at the fair.
