The 35th edition of the fair will fill Avinguda de la Catedral with books in Catalan once again.
For the last 35 years Catalan Book Week has been a meeting place for representatives of the Catalan publishing industry and readers. For just over a week, publishers, bookshops and writers will be presenting new publications and reviewing back catalogues in an attempt to ensure the present and future of the industry.
This year's edition promises to be the strongest in the event's history, with talks, discussions, book signings and literary walking routes. The programme is extensive but among the highlights you can find a walking route titled ‘Moors and Christians’ (9 September) by Magda Castells, a round-table discussion on ‘Peace in words’ (8 September) and the blockbuster event, a discussion featuring Paul Auster and Antoni Basses to introduce Auster's latest publication ‘1 2 3 4’ (9 September).
