Babelica, an initiative launched and led by the International Alliance of Independent Publishers, is a place for independent publishers from around the world to discover, share, meet and experiment, in a space created by independent publishers, artisans of bibliodiversity. Babelica invites publishers to embrace the unknown, be surprised and ask themselves questions; to imagine alternative possibilities.
The 2nd edition of Babelica, in 2023, takes place from 20 to 22 September, to coincide with the celebration of the International Day of Bibliodiversity on 21 September.
Babelica is an open space and it is your space: if you have comments and suggestions, don’t hesitate to write to the International Alliance of Independent Publishers: email@example.com
Babelica is a book fair dedicated to books published by independent publishing houses. It is designed to raise awareness of the variety of voices in international publishing and ensure they are heard, so as to promote diversity and creativity. At Babelica, a selection of titles from the many books published by independent publishers are being presented.
The Babelica book fair is available online throughout the year, from 20 September 2023 until the next edition in 2024.
Talks and readings
Babelica is also a space for debate, exchange and discussion between book professionals, academics, readers, those who are simply curious, and more. The program of round tables, talks and readings offered in 2023 has been developed by publishers who are members and/or close of the International Alliance of Independent Publishers.

Exchanges of rights
Babelica is an opportunity for exchanges of rights: more information here
Away from these events, if you are interested in buying or selling rights, you can contact publishing houses directly via the Babelica platform.
Finally, Babelica is a place for exchanging know-how and practices, a place for experimentation: therefore, from October 2023 workshops will take place to complement Babelica’s talks and round tables, to delve deeper and develop themes such as digital, discoverability, artificial intelligence and book ecology in small working groups.
