Skopje Book Fair 2015 Opens
The 27th edition of BOOK FAIR 2015 also known as Book Fair Skopje, will be held in Macedonia on 05-11 May 2015.
The commercial director of the Skopje Fair, Valentina Dimitrova announced that for the 27th edition of the Book Fair there will be several novelties. One of those is the themed program which is to take place during each day of the event.
"The program in fact involves themed promotions that will be different each day. One day will be dedicated to Macedonian poetry, then will have a promotion of young authors, then, 'Existentialism Day', 'Great World Wanderers', 'Day of Screen Art', and 'We Dream of Stars', which is a meeting between children and poets," Dimitrova informed.
She added that this year the fair will feature more publishers and authors, and that the management also expects a larger number of visitors.
"In May the day is longer and our experience tells us that in this period we have more visitors. That was one of the reasons why we decided to hold the Book Fair this month instead of April. The ticket price is symbolic, i.e. MKD 30, while for organized groups the price stands at MKD 20," Dimitrova said.
According to the president of the Association of Publishers and Bookstores, Gorjan Lazarevski, the publishing houses from the region are making constant efforts to increase the number of visitors at the fair which says enough, as he said, for the commitments to represent Macedonia before the world and metaphorically speaking, to bring the world to us.
