The London International Book Fair is traditionally held every year in the spring. The 2020 book fair was the first in a series of events cancelled due to the pandemic, with this year’s edition first postponed to June/July and eventually replaced by a new, digital format.
The event, called The Online Book Fair, started on Monday and will run until July 1. It is attended by 70 exhibitors, including Russia, Canada, and China. The organisers have also planned several dozen seminars – discussion panels, meetings, and presentations.
The Book Institute is presenting a new catalogue on science-fiction and fantasy literature at the event, as well as books from the ‘New Books from Poland’ catalogue and a review of award-winning children’s titles.
Also exhibiting at the Polish virtual stand are the following publishing houses: Wydawnictwo Literackie, Rebis, SuperMemo, and Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego.
