Nearly 200 titles in diverse sections will take part in this year’s Frankfurt fair,  the Secretary of Tehran Publishers and Booksellers Association (TPBA) Mahmoud Amouzegar announced.

It is also predicted that 20 publishers, literary associations or literary agencies would participate independently at the fair.

The books will cover different subjects including history, religion, poetry, art, literature, Sacred Defense, wisdom, philosophy, Amouzegar noted.

The London-based Iranian publisher Candle and Fog also invited three Iranian authors to introduce English versions of their books at the 2014 Frankfurt Book Fair.

The Big Clay Jar by Hushang Moradi Kermani, Democracy or DemoCrazy by Seyyed Mehdi Shojaei, and Redfish by actress-author Katayun Riahi are the books that will be promoted by the Candle and Fog publisher.

All the three books have been translated into English by the American Iranologist Caroline Croskery.
