Guest Country is a regular TABF program that draws attention to the culture of publishing found within a certain country or region – held annually, past Guest Country events have drawn attention to Switzerland, Brazil, Asia (China, Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore), the United States, and the Netherlands. For this year and our sixth rendition of the series, we will be delving into the publishing world of France. France boasts a multitude of independent booksellers and publishing entities, which play a crucial role in the country’s culture; as such, books have historically and continue presently to play an important role in the country. The TABF will be diving into the different aspects of this diverse and unique culture of publications through a series of seven exhibitions, talk events, workshops, and more.
