Jumbo Editorial Team

All is set for the seventh edition of the Karachi International Book Fair (KIBF) to get underway at the Expo Centre on December 16. The event will be launched with a media briefing at a five-star hotel of the city a couple of days earlier.

The KIBF, to be organized by the Pakistan Publishers & Booksellers Association with the collaboration of the National Books Foundation, an organ of the Ministry of Education, Government of Pakistan, will continue until December 20 and the entry to be exhibition will be free of cost.

The organizers are confident about the success of the event as the temperature has finally dropped after an extended summer that witnessed scorching sun during the day until the end of November.

The KIBF 2011 is expected to draw as big a crowd as the ones in the last six years. With elaborate arrangements being made to make the event more interactive the turnout is likely to be bigger than before.

As in the past, the KIBF 2011 will bring together domestic and international publishers, booksellers, librarians and institutional customers, agents and authors who will be showcasing their proud products to a knowledgeable audience.

The positive response to the event from the outset has made it the largest book fair to be held in the country. It has grown in stature over the years.
