Tehran International Book Fair (Persian: نمایشگاه بین‌المللی کتاب تهران‎‎) is an annual international book fair held in Tehran, Iran. Held in a 120,000 square meter venue at Tehran's Grand Prayer Grounds, the event also provides an opportunity for publishers to discuss future cooperation.[1] The fair also features special sections, including the House of Literati that honors prominent Iranian cultural figures from a variety of disciplines.[2] Censorship is a regular occurrence at the fair, with dozens of books confiscated and publishing houses banned from attending each year.[3]
