The 19th edition of the Feria Internacional del Libro begins Sept. 18 for a 10-day run.
The book fair is a major cultural event each year in Costa Rica. This year, Central America will be the invited guests. Authors from El Salvador, Panamá, Nicaragua and Honduras will be featured.
Once again the location will be the Antigua Aduana on Calle 23, which will be filled to capacity with booths of editorial houses and retail outlets.
Although the bulk of the books are in Spanish, there are plenty of English books and activities to interest even the mono-lingual expat.
The book fair is the way Costa Rica promotes its writers to the rest of the world. In addition to the Cámara Costarricense del Libro, the sponsor is the Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud.
