Svět knihy fair in Prague cancelled

This year's edition of the Prague Book Festival was particularly promising. Poland was to be an honorary guest of the event. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the organisers initially postponed the International Book Fair and the "Svět knihy" Literary Festival until October but finally decided to cancel the event.

The fair and festival in Prague is the most frequently visited place for readers’ meetings with authors as well as the largest publishing industry event in the Czech Republic and one of the most significant in Central Europe.
