The event organised for the 95th time will also feature over a thousand book signing occasions and roundtable discussions, book reviews, concerts and lectures, they said.

Publishers will release several hundred new titles including 90 new poetry books along with an increasing number of youth books, the president of the association of Hungarian publishers and booksellers (MKKE) told a press conference.

“Claims that people and younger generations do not read these days is simply not true,” said Katalin Gal.
