Turin International Book Fair


The 35th edition of the Turin International Book Fair, Italy’s most important publishing event, was held from 18-22 May 2023, and involved every category of the book community: publishers, authors, booksellers, librarians, illustrators, teachers, students, professionals and many, many readers.

The Fair’s pavilions hosted large, small and independent publishing houses, along with the stands of public and private institutions. This annual trade show, which is both an exhibition and a cultural event, featured lectures, performances, book presentations and numerous educational initiatives.

As always, the Daughters of St. Paul participated in the Fair with an array of interesting publishing proposals and an invitation to meet the authors of some of their publications.

Particularly rich this year was their stand’s program of events, some of which took place in the convention halls, and others in a new extension to the Fairground’s space, which was added in anticipation of a great influx of participants, and which indeed drew record crowds.
