GUEST OF HONOUR FOR ADIBF 2018
POLAND IS THE GUEST OF HONOUR FOR ADIBF 2018
Poland is this year’s Guest of Honour for the 2018 Abu Dhabi International Book Fair (ADIBF).
A wide range of authors, intellectuals and artists will discuss Poland’s rich literary and cultural traditions. Over a thousand years of Polish culture, with a particular focus on the last hundred years of Poland’s independence, will be reflected in presentations on the golden classics of Polish literature and works by Polish Nobel prize laureates, as well as discussions of works by the contemporary writers invited to participate in the ADIBF.
The professional program will include an in-depth presentation of the Polish book market and panels featuring experts on translation and rights management. Events addressed to children will feature esteemed Polish artists and educators.
A presentation by Polish chefs will be accompanied by discussions of the history of Polish cuisine, while a panel on new technologies will be featured alongside discussions of the history of Polish art, music (including the legacy of Chopin and Szymanowski) and cinema. In short, the program will offer insight into both Poland’s past and its current dynamic development.
Everyone is welcome at the Polish pavilion at the 2018 ADIBF.
