Kollek Honored by Publishers

Seventy New York publishers met last night at a reception in honor of Teddy Kollek. Mayor of Jerusalem, to invite continuing involvement of American publishers in the bi-annual Jerusalem International Book Fair. The reception, held in the Harvard Club, was hosted by a Committee of New York publishers on behalf of the book fair.

This seventh Jerusalem International Book Fair will be held from April 28 to May 5, 1975, in Jerusalem. The sixth fair drew 625 publishers from 29 countries with 29,000 books exhibited and an attendance of 63,000 people.

Kollek said the Fair has become the place for visiting publishers to meet publishers from all over the world to buy and sell rights, to present and examine co-publishing and co-production possibilities, to expand international sales of their lists, and to arrange co-publishing projects.
