Officially opened on Thursday 14 March 2019 by Prime Minister Édouard Philippe and Franck Riester, Minister for Culture, Livre Paris closed its doors on Monday 18 March 2019. Exhibitors and visitors enjoyed a friendly and particularly successful session; a large number of publishers and booksellers reported increased sales.
With over 160,000 visitors, the 39th Livre Paris only saw a very slight fall in attendance (-2%), despite a backdrop of tense social developments.
With 3,000 authors and 1,200 exhibitors from some 50 countries, Livre Paris cements its status as a must-attend international literary event.

With books and culture the focus of discussions, Livre Paris celebrated Europe’s huge literary heritage.
