The Warsaw International Book Fair – For the first few years Poland’s leading book fair was held in Poznań, but since 1958 it has been held in the capital. Nowadays it ranks as the foremost meeting place for publishers, writers and readers in Central and Eastern Europe. Traditionally held in May, each year the book fair features a “special guest”, focusing on the literature of a particular country (Germany in 2006, Ukraine in 2007 and Israel in 2008). In 2008 the event attracted more than 600 exhibitors from 30 countries.
Book Fair in Cracow – The fair has now been held annually for 12 years and has become an important fixture in the autumn schedule for all Poland’s major publishers. 438 exhibitors from all over Poland took part in the 2007 event.
