Time-tested books


In 2014 the Vilnius Book Fair will highlight the classical literature. The questions like - Is classical literature immortal? What does it mean to every one of us? Do we understand the same books alike?  What are the topical problems we are looking for in the classical literature? And what do the classical books say to us and about us?- will be highlighted in the discussion and seminar programme of the next Vilnius Book Fair.

Over 300 exhibitors from 8 countries will participate in the coming Fair.  Among them - three collective stands from Germany, Russia and Belarus. The German publishers are represented by the Frankfurt Book Fair. Germany at the Vilnius Book Fair.pdf (108.18 KB) Frankfurt Book Fair Stand.pdf (116.58 KB).

Visitors of the fair are invited to take part in creative workshops, readings, meetings with authors of children's literature, book illustrators from Lithuania and foreign countries. The aim of the studio is to show the development of the book from the ancient times to nowadays, to teach book binding modes, various illustration techniques, and to promote reading among children and teenagers.  Creative Studio YOU CAN CREATE A BOOK.pdf (37.56 KB)


Children‘s Hall. Traditionally children have their own place in the Vilnius Book Fair, where they can play freely and the events dedicated for them do not "interfere" with more serious interests of the adults and take place on the specially installed "stage for children". 


Discussion club. Adults, who enjoy serious discussions and intelligent conversations, may visit the Discussion Club. Events held in the Discussion club are not associated with any specific publishing house or new publication. The well-known Lithuanian and foreign representatives of culture, art, business and science take part in the club’s discussions.  Discussion Club.pdf (44.80 KB)
