The 2018 Shanghai Book Fair is a race of worms; bookworms, that is. The fair runs 📚from August 15th to August 21st 📚, but you better get your tickets now before they all get munched up by the other bookworms!
The best way to get tickets is at the venues, and we recommend you get there early to avoid the lines.
