TEHRAN.(Iranart) – A number of 22 Iranian publishers have plans to attend the Frankfurt Book Fair 2018 running from October 10 to 14, Iran Cultural Fairs Institute (ICFI) director Amir-Masud Shahramnia has said.
“Four literary agencies, and six associations will join the publishers at the major world cultural event,” Shahramnia told the Persian service of MNA on Saturday.
The Union of Tehran Publishers and Bookseller, Iranian Association of Academic Publishers, Association of Women Publishers, Iran’s Association of Sacred Defense Publishers, and Iranian Association of Writers for Children and Youth are among the participating associations, he added.
“Due to the current adverse economic conditions confronting the country, we are planning to decrease the budget and that is why the children and adults’ sections will be combined in order to rent a smaller pavilion,” he remarked.
Shahramnia hoped that the Iranian participants at the fair this year would achieve to sign contracts with the foreign publishers to help publish and promote more Iranian books.
