Online Book Fair
The Tirana Book Fair for this year is not taking place in the "Palace of Congresses" as it was the tradition, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
During these days, publishers, writers, poets, translators, readers and people of culture meet for book discussions, presentations of new titles, but also debate tables, live stream, or in physical environments, respecting all the conditions of security.
The exhibition "November 23" comes to the artistic life of Tirana, as one of the important activities in the field of visual art.
