The Paris Book Fair, the largest in France, opened Friday at an expo center in the capital with a variety of programs featuring 20 authors from Japan, including Nobel laureate Kenzaburo Oe.

The book fair, known locally as Salon du livre de Paris, is marking its 32nd year. Japan was selected as this year’s special guest country. Because the fair is being held around the first anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake, many of the symposiums and other programs are based on themes related to the natural disasters and nuclear crisis.
