Alfonso X el Sabio will be the epicenter, but there will be more activities in the Archaeological Museum and the Regional Library, with an example by Andersen
From today until October 12, readers have an appointment with the Murcia Book Fair 2022, with 60 stands and 40 exhibitors installed on the Paseo Alfonso X el Sabio. An edition that 700 writers will go through.
After the official inauguration by the authorities, one of the most important moments today is the proclamation, at 6 pm, in the Hall of Degrees of the Faculty of Law of the UMU, by Lorenzo Silva – winner of the Nadal and Planeta awards – and Noemí Trujillo , authors of a series of police novels starring homicide inspector Manuela Mauri. After the proclamation, both will sign ‘The forge of a rebel’ at the LA TRUTH booth at 8.30 pm.
In addition to signing copies of authors of regional and national importance, such as the writers behind the pseudonyms Carmen Mola, Manuel Vilas, Rodrigo Cortés, Salva Espín or Ilu Ros, various activities will be offered around the book.
In the Regional Library of Murcia (BRMU) you can visit the exhibition ‘Andersen: A journey through Spain’ until 31 October. The exhibition is reminiscent of the writer’s two journeys to our country. The first, in 1862. Andersen was no stranger to the romantic trend that, from 1808, attracted many tourists, adventurers seduced by the clichés surrounding the Spanish character: seasoned men, dazzlingly beautiful dark-haired women, exotic landscapes and a mishmash of multiple civilizations. The author arrived in Spain hoping to find here everything he had read or had been told.
On the other hand, the Archaeological Museum of Murcia will host several lectures on the trade. There will be talk about the translation sector –day 7–, there will be a closing for the Murcia Romántica writers association –day 8– and a workshop given by Carlos Salem in collaboration with the mental health program Solidarios para el Desarrollo –day 12 – . In addition, the music of Oche Cortés ‘Sing for the poets’ –day 7–. The museum will also witness the tribute to Asensio Piqueras, former director of the Book Fair, who passed away in May, which will be commemorated with a poetry recital on Saturday, 8.
