Dedicated to Olga Portuondo, winner of the National Social, Sciences Research and History Prize and to Leonardo Acosta, winner of the National Literature and Music Prize, the meeting will also mark anniversaries like the 400th of the publication of the second volume of Don Quixote and the centennial of the birth of poet and pedagogue Rael Ferrer.
Over 2,000 titles –among them 850 novelties- will be on the shelves of this Fair, for a total of a little over five million copies.
