The book fair has been a part of the Platonov Festival since 2012. Many publishers from Moscow, St. Petersburg and Voronezh usually participate in the event.
The fair displays modern and classical prose and poetry, belles-letters and academic literature, non-fiction, art albums, biographies, books for children and other printed matters.
There’s a children’s tent at the fair that works daily where one can attend master classes held by publishing houses, presentations of books and quizzes for children.
The main event of the Book Fair is the reading-relay races of the works of Andrey Platonov.
