Venezuela´s International Book Fair 2011


Children’s books, art books, novels, social and natural science books, and books by socialist theorists and political leaders were among the tens of thousands of books available at discounted prices at Venezuela’s VII International Book Fair in Caracas over the past nine days. “This revolution has to be a revolution of culture, and in a unique manner, an editorial revolution,” said former Venezuelan Culture Minister Farruco Sesto at a forum during the fair. The annual festival hosted dozens of literary conferences, forums, workshops, educational expositions, an artisan craft fair, and dance and musical performances by children and adults.
