Queen Letizia of Spain today arrived at the Retirement Park in Madrid to inaugurate the 80th edition of the ‘Madrid Book Fair’. The annual event is organized every year in September to promote books and reading as well as the businesses, entities and institutions that are dedicated to publishing, distribution or sale of books.
The Bookfair marks one guest nation as its Guest of honour each year. This year it’s celebrating Columbia. Vitality, creativity and innovation are the hallmarks of Colombia, therefore, through participation in the Fair, it is intended to continue with the development and consolidation of its cultural industries and integration with international markets and other productive sectors, the base of the Orange Economy led by the Colombian government.
The book fair will show Columbian history and how the country that celebrated its 200th birthday in 2019 has overcome the challenges and progress made in institutional, social and economic matters.
Letizia toured the book fair, met with the authorities, guests and learned about these books on showcase.
She visited various booths and heard from the vendors, publishers and authors.
