Many of you may not be aware that a “virtual Book Fair” has been organised to fill the void left by the postponement of this year’s Salon du Livre Rare, traditionally held this week at the Grand Palais. The familiar physical fair will now be held in September, but a new virtual version will also now be held on the usual dates. Some details will be found here:
In connection with the virtual book fair there will also be a pair of Zoom webinars (French and English) scheduled to begin at 1 pm (Paris time) on Wednesday. These will provide the launch for the virtual fair, which opens on Thursday at 5. A more complete brief on the focus of the webinars has not been provided – to me at least – but I suspect they will extend themselves beyond just the idea of virtual bookselling.
Links for joining the webinars will be found by following the link shown above.
I haven’t yet found the url for the virtual fair itself, but will post it here as soon as I can get it.
Here is where you will find the virtual book fair, starting on Thursday at 5pm (Paris time):
