About the 31st International Book Fair in Cuba

 The 31st “International Book Fair in Cuba” (FIL Cuba), will be held from February 9 to 19, 2023. It takes place in various locations, but its main venue is still in the San Carlos de La Cabaña Fortress (Havana). It is a festival of letters to live as a family with prestigious intellectuals and to acquire works of universal renown at popular prices.  The International Book Fair in Cuba is conceived as a space for dialogue between literatures from the more than forty countries that regularly participate in the event. It offers its main wealth to the authors, publishers, distributors, literary agents and booksellers present: a massive public readership, prepared in the most diverse fields, and with the capacity and willingness to participate in the cultural dialogue that is proposed.
