On his Twitter account, Prieto recalled the words said by the Miguel de Cervantes Award winner and author of emblematic novels, such as The Kingdom of this World, who considered the triumph of the Revolution as the end of the “times of loneliness” and the beginning of solidarity.

Prime Minister Manuel Marrero noted that it is always a good time to enjoy the literary adventure that a book gives us, and called to read and learn.

Cuban poet and editor Teresa Melo, one of the main lyrical voices in the 1980s, acknowledged “those who write, edit, design, compose, print, load, transport, promote, sell and buy.”

She mentioned the upcoming Havana Book Fair, scheduled from April 20-30, with more than 276 guests from 32 countries and dedicated to Mexico. She also noted the presence of 96 exhibitors, distributors and publishers from nations such as Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Bolivia and Venezuela.
