The Málaga Book Fair celebrates its 40th anniversary

Another years is being celebrated the Book Fair in many Spanish cities, the annual meeting with news of the publishing world and bookselling in general. In Malaga the Book fair is celebrating from the 28th of May to 6th of June its 40th edition in the Paseo Park.

The new edition will feature a series of activities such as workshops, concerts, film series, signatures, book presentations, contests and storytellers, as well as’ The Night of the book.”

Around fifty posts turn the Paseo del Parque in a great celebration of the written with the presence many local and national authors.

Storytellers and puppet shows and music become the greatest incentive to move closer to reading as a family; legends, songs, riddles, games, a little bit of everything to enjoy as a family and, incidentally, kill another bird with the same stone: promote reading.

In the Playroom children can give free rein to their sense of artistic creation or the bindery workshop. Open to the general public on weekends, it was been filled, especially in the evenings, with curious of all ages. They have learned to sew the leaves, glue the back and mount the covers of a book. Of course, then they could take it home.

Anyone who wants to try his luck has a new appointment the next 5th and 6th of June. Meanwhile there are a thousand and one titles in any of the 47 booths throughout the week to “ennoble the Park,” as expressed by the poet Alfonso Canales.
