WHAT BOOK WILL ACCOMPANY YOU THIS SUMMER?
June is characterized by for many things: it’s summer, even though it doesn’t look like it, school is over, and we are lucky to celebrate the Madrid Book Fair. I love el Retiro full of stands, the excitement of the authors, the publishers and the librarians, and also the people who fill the weekend this wonderful park with the intention of spending a family day, where books are important. This fills me with joy because it’s a way to cultivate the power of reading in the family, something basic so children and teenagers get to know that a book can always be a good life or traveler companion.
Some of our authors have been signing: Paz Castelló with her thriller LA LLAVE 104, a lucid portrait of the crisis and a denunciation of political corruption. Alejandro Palomas has been also there with UN SECRETO, the new story of Guille that already made us fall in love with UN HIJO, or Emma Lire with PONE EN MI PIEL, the novel that shares the story of Petrus Gonsalvus, the King from the Canary Islands, who stars the real tale of The Beauty and The Beast. Jordi Tello, writer of 1816, EL AÑO QUE NO HUBO VERANO, was also in Madrid to sign his latest prose book full of thoughts and inspirational quotes about love breakups. Víctor Amela with YO PUDE SALVAR A LORCA, a charming novel both for the lovers of Garcia Lorca and for those who are not so fond of him, David Lozano, who has just published the children book series Mayra Brócoli, and Ana Alcolea, writer of the children book EL FANTÁSTICO MUNDO DE LA ÓPERA, were also among the guests of the Book Fair. Finally, Francesc Miralles is signing books this weekend of the book I talked about last week, LA BIBLIOTECA DE LA LUNA, a unique story that, despite taking place in the moon, tells a very human story with the inspirational touch present in Francesc’s style, who never ceases to surprise us with his literary talent.
For those who have never come to the Fair, I highly recommend it, because the place is perfect and the atmosphere is amazing. This is where I leave you with this video we created in the agency so you can write down the books that will accompany you this summer on the beach or on the mountain. Holidays are a wonderful time to find a moment to get hooked on a book.
