Diversity of national proposals at Cuba’s Book Fair

Havana, Apr 26 (Havana) The so-called big bookstore tent at the San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress is one of the most crowded during the International Book Fair in Cuba due to the diversity of proposals and novelties.

In statements to Prensa Latina, Mabel Telles, a specialist of the National Book Distributor, said spaces are well differentiated by themes and alluded to the incorporation, on this occasion, of numerous international best sellers in the category of art and literature.

The section includes, for example, works dedicated to the French military man and statesman Napoleon Bonaparte and Frankenstein, by the English writer Mary Shelley; as well as children’s books, among them, The Golden Age, by José Martí, and Once Upon a Time, with adaptations of classic stories.

Coloring books, comic books and a variety of adventure and culinary materials are some of the most demanded productions and, according to Telles, this thirtieth edition of the cultural event offers the public almost 400 new volumes.

In general, the Book Fair 2022, held after last year’s interruption as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, has 900 publishing novelties from the Caribbean nation, four thousand titles, four million printed texts and others in digital format.

The activities, also coordinated by the Office of the City Historian, commemorate the centennial of the birth of Carilda Oliver Labra and Jesús Orta Ruiz, the Naborí Indian, the 120th anniversary of the birth of Nicolás Guillón and the 140th anniversary of the publication of José Martí’s poetry book Ismaelillo.
