23 April is not only UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day 2015, it is also the first day of the annual Salon International du Livre rare & de l’Autographe, held at one of the most elegant venues in Paris: the Grand Palais. SLAM, as organizer of the fair and member of ILAB, is proud to take part in the worldwide fundraising campaign to raise money for the schools in South Sudan.
That's why the Empty Bookcase Posters will be seen at the Grand Palais until Sunday. Visitors will be very welcome to join the worldwide efforts to support UNESCO's literacy projects!
The 20.000 visitors, collectors, researchers and booksellers on the Book Fair will be given the opportunity to contribute to this large-scale project during a major cultural event. Who better than the thousands of booklovers gathered under the Grand Palais glass roof at this April weekend could better support this important initiative? Promoting literacy and reading is a fundamental challenge.
The Salon International du Livre rare & de l’Autographe at the Grand Palais runs until Sunday 8 pm.
