All you bibliophiles out there, clear out some space on your bookshelves as The Delhi Book Fair & Mini Stationery Fair 2019 is lurking around the corner, just waiting for you. This fair is a bi-annual thing. The first edition took place in January 2019 and the second one is going to take place in September only. So if any of you nerds missed the chance to check out the exhibition in January, seems like you got a re-run for missing it out earlier. And for the people who did attend the previous fair, you folks are in for a treat.Delhi Book Fair 2019

We know that books and stationery are enough reasons to attend this year's fair but we have some speculations that might push you towards the celebration of literature.


1. Author's Corner

How many times have you thought about confronting that one author who just changed your life with just his words? Now imagine if you get a chance to breathe the same air as he will breathe in that fair. Wouldn't that be an honour? We know the answers and it is very much possible that one of those authors might be present at the venue.

2. Screening of Films

This is your one chance to get a sneak-peak into the truck-load of literature just sitting around the libraries. The joy that you get whilst smelling the worn-out pages of a book is irreplaceable but how cool would it be to watch some inspirational material on the screen? And it is proof that literary knowledge is not confined to just books, it's a whole universe within itself. 

And it could be a fantastic opportunity for the ones who just can't get themselves to read but are still interested in knowing stuff.

3. Award-Winning Book Galleries

One place in the city where you find all your impossible books and publications is like a temple. But what if we were to tell you that the best book stores will be here at the fair to help you look for books that are just impossible to find? Sounds exclusive right!! And you definitely can buy quality things off these galleries, No question asked!!

4. Kavi Sammelan, Nukkad Nataks & A Lot More

This Book Fair is no less than a literature festival. However deep or update your curiosity may be, the place will always surprise you with some new element. Although we are quite certain that it will be a treat to watch the poets sharing their piece of work with everyone in the venue. And not to forget the street plays and their out-loud messages to the society. It is going to be a blast for sure! Kavi Sammelan, Nukkad Nataks & more
