Back for the 20th year running, Moscow’s  Book Fair – officially called the International Book Fair for High-Quality Fiction and Non-Fiction.

This year’s book fair will be held from Wed. Nov. 28 through Sun. Dec. 2 in Moscow’s Central House of Artists. For five days, one of Russia’s largest exhibition center will be home to scores of stalls filled with thousands of books to skim through, read, or purchase.

Each year the fair spotlights one country as its guest of honor, and this year’s spotlight is on Italy. Numerous award-winning contemporary Italian writers, including  Francesco Piccolo, Sandrone Dazieri, and Rosella Postorino, will present new books and participate in seminars at the fair. At the close of the first day of the fair, there will be a discussion of the Italian literary giant Umberto Eco.

Great hold on December 2, closing day, for “Gorbachev: His Life and Times”, the recent biography written by William Taubman, american author and political scientist who won the Pulitzer Prize.
