Thessaloniki International Book Fair to Be Held on November 25-28

THESSALONIKI — Τhe 18th Thessaloniki International Book Fair will be held digitally on November 25-28, with the 200 years since the Greek Revolution as its main topic and Germany as honoured country. The fair is held for the second year under the auspices of the President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou.

"We now serve the needs of two large categories of the public: the large number of visitors who love, visit and follow the book fair within the city but also the very wide and most numerous international online audience," the president of the Hellenic Cultural Foundation Nikos Koukis said.

The know-how acquired during the 17th book fair will be drawn on for this year's fair, which will again feature the remote participation of special guests through studios and digital platforms, before and during the fair, showcasing a new and innovative model for book promotion.

The 1821 War of Independence will have a central place in this year's fair, as well as discussions on current central issues for society.
