The original objective of Holiday Book Week was to promote living, contemporary authors, and this has not changed even after nine decades. Even now, the organizers of the book week want to give readers the opportunity to meet their favorite authors in person, as this is important for both creators and recipients. In addition to the introductions of the authors, there will also be round table discussions, lectures, and unusual literature classes, and book lovers will be welcomed with a richer international stand than ever before, a range of children’s books and reading materials.
