Fira Literal 2018: under the paving stones, the books

The fourth edition of the fair looks back on the events of Paris May 1968.

"Under the cobblestones, the beach" was the one of the slogans that blazoned the streets of Paris in May 1968. The Literal Fair of radical ideas and books has adapted the slogan for its 4th edition, which is set to take place at Ateneu Harmonia (Fabra i Coats) from 11 to 13 May, with the participation of over 80 publishers and bookshops.

The three days of the fair will see live music, theatre, interviews, book presentations, workshops, conferences, an area for kids, a cooperative bar and a number of surprises. The organisers highlight especially the presence of Camila Cienfuegos, a FARC commander and one of the most visible faces of the peace process in Colombia and Black Panther Party leader Elaine Brown. Another standout is the presence of the clown Leo Bassi, who will premiere his new show El último bufón. Among the concerts on offer are appearances by Tori Sparks, Kodjo Senyo, Marga Mbambe and Pinan 450F. It is, however, writers and books who are the main protagonists of the fair and book presentations will take place nonstop on Saturday and Sunday. Rosa Maria Presmanes, Asmaa Aouattah, Justo Arriola, Josep Pàmies, Oriol Fontdevila, Angela Nagle and Ernest Costa are just some of the authors who will talk about their work.
