The Steimatzky bookstore chain is marking February as foreign book month, as it did last year, and will offer about 50,000 non-Hebrew titles at a 25-percent discount. To celebrate its foreign book month, Steimatzky will host a number of events, including book signings by visiting foreign writers. Victoria Hislop, author of the award-winning The Island, will be in Israel and participate in an event in the Gan Ha'ir Steimatzky on February 13. Historian and author Michael Oren will speak at Beit Shmuel on February 2. In addition, Haim Sabato will hold talks on his books Dawning of the Day, Adjusting Sights and Aleppo Tales on February 10 at the bookstore's King George branch in Jerusalem. Two Bob Dylan tributes will be held as well, one on February 21 on Dizengoff and one on Sheinkin on the 29th. Children's events on "The Foreign Letter" will run at various malls across the country. Steimatzky says a quarter of all its sales are books not written in Hebrew, 80% of which are in English.
