Charan Homtienthong, former president of the Publishers and Booksellers Association of Thailand and director of the event, said that independent publishing groups had joined together to organise "ABC Book Fest 2020", in a new format with an interesting identity, as
it combines various arts that are linked to reading.
"This event is being attended by 76 publishers, small, medium and large, with a total of 147 booths over an area of more than 2,000 square metres at Mit Town Hall, Floor 5, Sam Yan Mit Town. This year's event is being held in a new format and the new location, Sam Yan Mit Town shopping centre, is in the heart of Bangkok, easily accessible by MRT subway. We are back to living life again even if life is not the same anymore,” said Charan.
Aside from the bookselling booths of the publishers, there are also art and crafts workshops for artists, illustrators and book cover designers.
ABC Book Fest 2020 runs until August 2.
