To satisfy all tastes and ages, the “La Boucherie” stand will features over 800 books, combining novels and literary prizes as well as comic-books and academic books. As it is the case of any typical book fair, this event will be a perfect opportunity for publishers, authors, artists and booksellers to present their material.

Organized by the ’National Book Council", this event will take place at the “Mediterranean Conference Centre" in Valletta, under its renowned title: "National Book Festival".

Due to the success of last year’s event, this year our Maltese partners also wanted to invite French writer Mr. Pierre Assouline, member of the Goncourt Academy, who will be with us on 14, 15 and 16 November.
