One of the grand event that occurs in South India. I used to attend this book festival when I was there. You will be lost in the crowd of people and books. But this year, I think I cant make it. I've attended a book fair that happened 2 months back in bangalore. It is not so grand as the one that happens in Chennai.It started last week and will be ending on 21st Jan. This time, the venue was changed from Quaid-e-Millat College to St. George Anglo Indian Higher Secondary School campus at Poonamallee High Road (opposite to Pachaiyappas college) and number of stalls are more. Guys @ Chennai, Don't miss the event!!
I read a nice blog by Desikan on this event. Since this blog is in tamil, you need to install tamil fonts.
