Bangkok, Thailand, will be the world book capital in 2013
Bangkok has been designated World Book Capital 2013. The city was selected by a committee made up of representatives from the three main branches of the publishing world and UNESCO, which met at the Organization’s Paris Headquarters on 27 June.
The Committee selected Bangkok “ for its willingness to bring together all the various stakeholders in the book supply chain and beyond, actors involved in the publication chain for a range of projects proposed, for its community-focused and the high level of its commitment through the proposed activities.” read more here
