Event details

La feria del libro de Madrid

The annual Madrid Book Fair starts on Fri, 31 May, and this year the emphasis is on “importance of the printed book” versus “digital alternatives”. The Fair promotes literature and reading, and focuses on the dedication that entrepreneurs, organizations and institutions have for the publication, distribution and sale of books. There are more than 300 booths and stalls, and many authors will be present for book signings and talks about their work. American writer Glenn Cooper will be launching his new book “El Fin de los Escribas” on Sat, 1 June, at the FNAC stand (nos 41 and 42) from 12-2pm, and at the El Corte Inglés booth (no. 178) from 7-9pm. Since his debut thriller, “Secret of the Seventh Son”, in 2009, Cooper has become a best-selling author, with sales of his novels now exceeding three million copies.

La feria del libro de Madrid, Parque del Buen Retiro, 31 May-16 Jun. Mon-Fri, 11am-2pm, 6-9.30pm; Sat, Sun, 11am-3pm, 5-9.30pm. Free.
