AMMAN — About 400 publishers from Jordan, the Arab region, and the world have signed up to the Amman International Book Fair, which will run from September 1 through September 10, organizers announced on Wednesday, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

The organizers said that the exhibition will feature recreational activities, story reading for children and young adults, poetry recitals, storytelling, and cultural seminars.
