International Book Fair

FEB 9 Feb – 4 March

What began as a modest book fair founded by the famous Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier has became the most important literary event on the island. Every year tens of thousands of people pack the San Carlos de la Cabaña Fortress in Havana. The Fair will be dedicated this year to the culture of the peoples of the Caribbean and to the National Prize-winners for Literature and Social Sciences Ambrosio Fornet and Zoila Lapique, respectively.
