Più Libri Più Liberi 2014 (My Pictures from 2013)

HURRAH! It's that time of the year again for this book fair, Più Libri Più Liberi to be happening in Rome, Italy. It is held at the same place, the Palazzo dei Congressi, from 4 to 8 December 2014.

You can find out more about Più Libri Più Liberi at the l'Espresso website, in an Italian article written by Sabina Minardi: A 'Più libri più liberi' in fiera i piccoli editori e le loro strategie per il futuro. Social network, e-commerce, festival. E velocità per seguire il mercato. Ecco come l'editoria indipendente vuol battere la crisi del libro. Here you will read about the strategies of how these small publishers beat the book crisis (but it's in Italian...).

I returned from my three-month trip in Italy in early November; thus, missing this year's book fair. I'm still beating myself up on it for not taking into consideration this event but I will not make the same mistake next year. I will be there.

Meanwhile, in celebration of this wonderful bookish event, I would like to share some pictures taken last year when I did attend it. I never did make a post about it, but it's never too late to do so now. I'm sorry for my tardiness!

My complimentary entrance ticket (normal admission: €5) to the publishers' book festival Più libri più liberi at Palazzo dei Congressi in #Rome, thanks to a wonderful friend from the Press Office of National Central Library of Rome.
