The 007 BookBond is an international book event hosted by the Italian Book Club (www.theitalianbookclub.com). It will be held on October 14, 2014 at the Bistrot Quirino Theatre in Rome. Based in Rome and London, the Italian Book Club was founded 18 months ago by distinguished Italian consultant anesthetist Dr. Federico Conforto whose daily work involves life and death medical emergencies. It started as an escape from the realities of his job and into his love for books, and has now evolved into a growing community where people discuss books online, and has personalised the reader/buyer experience where members will read a book and review, and watch author interviews. The aim of the organisation is to build up a worldwide network of authors, to possibly find the "next Shakespeare," as is rightfully put by the club’s custodians, as they go on proudly reciting one of their favourite sayings, "Books will never die!"
