Annual International Book Fair unveiled

The National Council for Culture, Arts and Literature has opened its 42nd Annual International Book Fair on 15th November at the international fairgrounds in Mishref. The fair runs this year from 15th to 25th November.

The flourishing cultural event aims to promote reading and writing in Kuwait and the Gulf. The exhibition is accompanied by book signing parties, seminars and workshops, apart from participation from some embassies like French embassy and the Embassy of United States of America.

The book fair displays not just Arabic books, but, tons of English publishers with their own stalls, and thousands of books in English language to browse through.

Once you arrive at the exhibition grounds in the Mishrif area, you can smell corn, nachos and shawarma at the entrances, to save the hungry after long hours of walk in the corridors of the expo.
