Angola: International Book Fair of Havana Closes

Havana — The 22nd International Book Fair of Havana closed last Sunday after receiving for the last ten days millions of literature lovers.

Dedicated to the writers Pedro Pablo Rodrigues and Daniel Chavaria, winners of the national prizes of Social Sciences and Literature, respectively, the exhibition brought together writers, publishers, translators, proofreaders, librarians and historians from over thirty countries, with Angola attending the event as a guest of honour.

Held in homage to the 160 years of the nationalist José Marti, the fair served as a dialogue space for intellectuals from different parts of the world, who analysed the socio-cultural reality of Cuba and the world in lectures and conferences.

ANGOP has learnt that the exhibition will continue in the other provinces, with exception of Havana, until next March 10.

Angola participated in the International Book Fair of Havana with a large delegation made up musicians, writers, plastic artists, researchers, art critics, historians, diplomats and contemporary artists.
