A literary respite, a refuge for independent authors and artists who are not given the opportunity to share their works in mainstream platforms, Komura; book fair will put a spotlight on works by a diversified selection of women this year.
Our publishers, writers and art merchants will be all women; the musicians playing at Echoes PH will be women; and, we will be featuring women in tech at Pixel to strengthen and assert the presence of the female identity and aesthetic in the publishing industry.

Inspired by the runaway library in Haruki Murakami’s award-winning novel “Kafka on the Shore,” Komura; is a literary respite where people can chill with friends and talk about stories they love.
An experience-focused fair, Komura; is a haven for deep and honest exchange of curiosities and a platform to showcase and explore the possibilities of a book.
