The International 20th Biennial Book Fair
By Sao Paulo News Group (Originally in Portuguese)
[Sao Paulo] The Biennial Book Fair is a great cultural event of Latin America and the 2nd biggest editorial market worldwide. This year, the 20th anniversary of the book fair took place from September 14 to 24, Golden Year 5 (2008) and attracted 350 exhibitors from 14 different countries. Over 728,000 visitors attended the event and around 2 million books were sold. Our Association members from the Sao Paulo Center, Brazil introduced Master’s bestselling books－The Birds in My Life, The Dogs in My Life and The Noble Wilds. The guests, especially children, were enchanted by Master’s love for animals. Our local fellow initiates had the opportunity to distribute more than 100,000 SOS flyers to the general public! People from all walks of life such as authors, educational professionals, and editors were interested in the issue of global warming, and some even asked for more flyers to share with their loved ones.
