Bangkok, Thailand

It's National Library Week!  But, this year the World Book Capital is not in the United States.  It's in Thailand, thanks to UNESCO.  In fact, no U.S. city has ever been designated World Book Capital.  By and large, the U.S. ignores UNESCO, and UNESCO ignores the U.S.  It's political geography at work.  [2011]
