BookFest, Malaysia’s largest book exposition, returns this month for its 13th year in the capital since 2006. With a trilingual treasure trove of titles in English, Chinese and Malay on offer across 700 booths, bibliophiles can soak up the latest from leading publishers from China, the UK, the US and across the region and further afield. On top of performances, contests and meet-the-author sessions lined up for the nine-day event, BookFest gives up-and-coming local and international authors the chance to showcase their work to the 650,000-plus Kuala Lumpur book fiends expected to attend.
