The 12th edition of the PODGORICA’S BOOK AND EDUCATION FAIR will take place from May 2 to 09, 2017.
The first incarnation of the Podgorica Book Fair was established in 2006 under the auspices of the Montenegrin Ministry of Culture and Podgorica Municipality. The fair brings together a great number of influential publishers from Montenegro and its neighboring countries. From last year Ministry of Education is co organizer of the Fair.
The general opinion is that this fair, being the first large book fair in Montenegro, has taken a very important role within the cultural milieu of Montenegro and its bordering countries in terms of representing a traditional meeting of publishers, authors, readers and cultural officials.
Considering the results of the previous editions and the interests of the exhibitors in general, the 10th edition is to host some important world’s literature authors, a great deal of accompanying programs, but also the fair’s visitors. Among authors who were our guests in previous editions were: Tariq Ali, Casimiro De Brito, Rade Šerbedžija, Tony Parsons, Claudio Magris etc.
Along with the prizes for the complete publishing production (best publisher), best publishing undertaking and best publishing edition, we also give reward to the most improving children’s fiction publisher, to the best artwork, best designed edition, and best decorated exhibiting space.
Any additional information can be obtained from the Fair’s management in Podgorica.
