Sancti Spiritus’s Serafín Sanchez Park has looked quite crowded these days due to the celebration of the 21st International Book Fair in this territory.
The book event, which is dedicated this year to national prize winners Zoila Lapique and Ambrosio Fornet and to the Caribbean cultures, also pays tribute in this region to writers from the local municipality of Cabaiguan. The event will come to an end tomorrow in the island’s western region and will then be held February 29th through March 4th in the Cuban eastern provinces.
The visit of Jamaican literary critic and essayist Keith Ellis and his lecture El Caribe que nos une (The Caribbean uniting us), was highly welcomed by readers. He also presented a book published by the local Luminaria publishing house.
A large collateral program was scheduled for the book fair days including the celebration of the traditional Colonial Art Museum’s Noche de la Fuente circle, homage ceremonies to several outstanding personalities like poet Esbertido Rosendi and the Love Letter International Contest award ceremony.
