Book Week in Israel – Coming Soon to a City Square Near You!

Tel Aviv’s Logo for 2013: Year of the Arts

The annual book fest which sweeps Israel cities starts this year on June 5.  Officially known as “book week”, thousands upon thousands of people crowd these outdoor book sales which are a celebration of reading and vivid proof that books are far from gone from modern society.
According to Wikipedia this annual tradition began as a one day event in 1926.  This year it will be spread over 10 days which is appropriate since my last count shows at least 10 Israeli cities hosting fairs including Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ramat Gan, Beersheva and more.
