Dia el Libro

Instituto Cervantes celebrates Día del Libro or International Book Day, an event that aims to promote the love for reading and the written word, with a grand book sale at the Instituto Cervantes. And I need to add, mostly European titles!!! Regularly celebrated on the 23rd of April, World Book Day was inspired by a tradition from Barcelona, Spain that celebrates St. George's Day, where men and women exchange a rose for the gift of a book. Coming after last year's successful run, where guests had their pick of books and the chance to witness and participate in activities such as wine and cheese-tasting, dance classes, concerts, and free Spanish classes, the 3rd Día del Libro promises to be even grander and bigger.Opening its doors to bibliophiles, culture lovers, and the curious on April 19 from 10 am to midnight, Instituto Cervantes revives the grand Barcelonan tradition with the Día del Libro book fair.
