Description

‘Alternative’ publishers’ offerings get introduced to readers at a week of shows and sales at a historic building that once housed a leper hospital. A visitor to Independent Book Week in Jerusalem calls the event “like magic. With old books, and with artists, and with crafts, and with children, and music, and beer that's the best you can ask for.” Independent Book Week takes place in Hansen House, a historic leper-hospital-turned-cultural-venue, and it showcases the vast variety of books that are being published in the independent market in Israel – titles not likely to be available at the better-known Jerusalem International Book Fair every year. ------- Visit the MFA's Social Media Channels: Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/IsraelMFA http://www.facebook.com/IsraeliVibe Twitter - http://www.twitter.com/Israel http://www.twitter.com/IsraelMFA Find us on Instagram: @IsraelMFA - http://instagram.com/israelmfa @StateofIsrael - http://instagram.com/stateofisrael Add us on google+ https://plus.google.com/+Israel Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/israelmfa/ Vine http://www.vine.co/Israelmfa Have you subscribed to our channel yet? please do! http://www.youtube.com/Israel Please credit Israel MFA for any use of this video.
