Gaudeamus Book Fair, at the Romexpo Central Pavilion in Bucharest, during November 19 – 23

The 21st edition of the Gaudeamus Educational Books International Fair will take place during November 19 – 23 at the Romexpo Central Pavilion in Bucharest, the website of the event shows.
The Gaudeamus Educational Books International Fair is, for many years, a referential event, both for experts of the field and wide audiences.
The most important and long-lived exhibition dedicated to the publishing market in Romania, Gaudeamus has a well-defined position in the cultural calendar and in the conscience of the audience, as shown by the over 100,000 visitors who annually come to discover the latest book releases, Mediafax reports.
Organized by Radio Romania since 1994, the Gaudeamus Educational Books International Fair is an annual event hosted by the Romexpo Central Pavilion that reunites, in an exhibition space of approximately 14,000 square metres, the offers of over 400 Romanian and foreign publishing houses, print shops, educational institutions, cultural centres and institutions, mass-media institutions, cultural and educational NGOs, professional associations, book stores and libraries.
In the autumn of each year, the Gaudeamus International Fair becomes the centre of the editorial market and of the cultural life in Romania. The fair is an innovative combination of book exhibition and literary cafe that proposes a marathon of over 600 cultural events at each edition, in a friendly and calm atmosphere, granting an encounter with the lively world of printed culture.
The fair annually opens its gates to foreign exhibitors and visitors, creating the ideal place of encounter for foreign guest writers and their Romanian readers, but also for book industry specialists, authors, editors, translators, book illustrators, agents and literary critics.
The honorary guest of the Gaudeamus International Fair in 2013 was the group of Northern countries, including Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden. The five northern countries attended Gaudeamus 2013 under the slogan “Cool Nordic Bucharest”. Thus, literature enthusiasts had the occasion to meet Icelandic writer Yrsa Sigudardottir, Swedish authors Jan Wallentin, Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom, Danish authors Anders Ronnow Klarlund and Jacob Weinreich, who publishes under the pseudonym A. J. Kazinski, as well as Finnish Salla Simukka and Antti Tuomainen. The eight guests’ books were released by Trei Publishing House.
