More Than 1000 New Titles in Cuba Book Fair
Dedicated to Chile, the event will also pay tribute to Cuban writers Fina Garcia Marruz and Jorge Ibarra, while the Casa de las Americas will celebrate its 50th anniversary.

The president of the Instituto Cubano del Libro, Iroel Sanchez said at press conference that the fair will be held throughout the country, but in lesser cities than last year´s due to the recent damages caused by hurricanes Gustav, Ike and Paloma.

The main new titles will be presented, though, in over 40 hurricane-hit municipalities.

Among the proposals of the Letras Cubanas publishing house is a re-edition of La consagración de la primavera, by Alejo Carpentier and a Silvio Rodriguez song book.

Arte y Literatura will present books by the Argentina´s Jorge Boccanera (La pasion de los poetas), Chilean Volodia Teitelboim (Por ahi anda Rulfo), and the Swedish Lasse Soderberg (Las piedras de Jerusalen), to mention just a few.

The fair that receives more than four million visitors every year will end on March 8 in the eastern province of Santiago de Cuba.
