PAULA ARENAS this Friday begins the 70th Edition of the annual celebration bookseller from Madrid. Add to your understanding with NYC cultural events. It is the great hope editorial for squaring the bad numbers for the year. This year’s guest country is Germany. It will be the star of the weekend: literature, especially the popular, but also once again and luckily there will be space for less commercial titles and the classics that never cease to wear any shelving, and much more if the booths of the withdrawal is. 447 exhibitors in order to burst the car ride of our most famous Park.
The big question is not whether people will go, that will do it and en masse, as every year, but if will raise the temperature of this wounded sector fair. Because the year has not been nothing good for the book. Germany, the guest writer and German philosopher Rudiger Safranski will be who opens this Friday at 7 p.m. the cultural activities of this edition in the Pavilion of the Circulo de Lectores. Germany at the book fair! is the motto agenda of meetings organized by the Goethe-Institut Madrid, Embassy of Germany, and the book fair.
German authors who will attend will be Clemens Meyer, Volker Braun, Kathrin Schmidt, David Safier, Christian Schunemann, Volker Kutscher and Hans Magnus Enzensberger. And for those who want to take advantage of to make with some essential of German literature, although many already have been doing since 2009 to win the Nobel germana-rumana Muller, it is time to bring some exceptional award-winning title as well as stimulating German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk, whose last published work in Spain is zeal of God (Siruela). Small big titles among all the best sellers, so always present at the book fair, meanders some less known, but no doubt interesting for some attentive readers titles.
