The 29th Jamshedpur Book Fair is all set to take off on November 15.

The 10-day fair, arguably one of the most sought-after events in the city’s calendar, will be held at Tagore Society’s Rabindra Bhavan grounds in Sakchi. 

A wide range of books in English, Hindi, Bengali, Gurmukhi, Odia and Santhali will be up for grabs. However, unlike the previous two years, the 2013 edition will have no theme. “This year, we don’t have any theme. It will be a general fair. The emphasis will be on quality rather than quantity,” said Ashis Chowdhury, the secretary of Tagore Society.

The organisers will try to match the standards of other book fairs in metropolitan centres by hosting a slew of events such as seminars on literature and inter-school competitions during the 10-day event.
