Georgia will become an honorable guest country for another important literary platform, Paris Book Fair. According to the Public Relations Service of the National Library of Georgia, the offer was made still in the framework of the Frankfurt Book Fair and presumably will be held in 2021.
Georgia has not even had its own stand at the most prestigious French Book Fair. Consequently, translations of Georgian literary works are very few.
According to the Center, Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of Georgia has expressed readiness to implement the project and the process of verification is underway at this stage.
The Paris Book Fair Salon Du Livre has been held annually since March 1981, and presents a honorary guest country each year. The market is a place where the writers, publishers, artists and publicists meet, from various countries of the world. New books and magazines, print technologies and innovations, publishing activities are introduced.
The Paris Book Fair hosts annually 1200 publishers and 2000 authors from 37 countries.
