The former Damm beer factory hosts Barcelona’s first Christmas Book Fair

On Wednesday the 3rd of December more than forty authors and publishers will take part in a series of activities relating to books and literature

On Wednesday the 3rd of December, Barcelona will play host to the first edition of Mercat de Nadal del Llibre, or Christmas Book Fair, an initiative based on the traditional Christmas markets held in other European cities around this time of year but, on this occasion, focussing on literature, books and authors.

Beginning at 6 pm, roughly forty authors and publishers will gather in the former Damm beer factory (L'Antiga Fàbrica Damm) to present a series of chats and workshops relating to the world of books and publishing and to sign and dedicate copies of their editions, which will be available for purchase throughout the event.

During the four hours of the fair, the four sections of the former beer factory will present a series of events that will include a dialectical show-down among independent publishers the likes of Blackie Books, Rayo Verde, Periscopi, Editorial Base, Edicions de 1984 and Club Editor, a face-to-face interview featuring Francesc Serés and Ignacio Vidal-Folch, a poetry recital by Joan Margarit, a presentation on detective fiction and the noir novel by Lorenzo Silva, Alicia G. Bartlett, Víctor del Árbol and Toni Hill, and a workshop on urban gardening entitled Fem de pagesos a la ciutat, with Ester Cànovas, among many others.

Entry to the first Christmas Book Fair is free, subject to prior registration here.
