One of the big events of Cairo's cultural year is back. The 44th Cairo International Book Fair, the largest and oldest book fair in the Middle East, will kick off on Wednesday January 23, 2013 and run until  Tuesday February 5 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the International Fair Grounds in Nasr City. Lybia is going to be this year's Guest of Honor.

In addition to books perusal and purchase, and meetings with authors, visitors will be offered cultural activities such as readings, concerts, and movies. The programme is not yet on but hopefully will be soon. Click here to go directly to CIBF website in English where you shall be able in the near future to get all information about the fair.
