Tehran Intl. Book Fair wraps up 

May 15, 2016

TEHRAN – The 29th Tehran International Book Fair with the motto of “Tomorrow Is Too Late to Read” came to an end on Saturday.

Minister of Culture and Islamic Guidance Ali Jannati, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, Tehran Mayor Mohammed-Baqer Qalibaf, and a number of cultural officials and publishers attended a closing ceremony held at Shahre Aftab. 

The organizers relocated the fair this year from Imam Khomeini Mosalla to Shahre Aftab, a huge fairground newly constructed in southern Tehran.

The venue was warmly received by visitors and publishers negating experts’ predictions that the relocation might result a drop in the number of visitors.

Russia was the guest of honor at the 10-day book fair, which also hosted distributors of approximately 6000 world publishers.
