About the Havana Book Fair
The Havana Book Fair was created as a space for lovers of cultural literature to be able to have an open dialogue about various aspects of their craft. Authors, publishers, and distributors from around the globe are always in attendance, as well as a large public of avid readers and book lovers. The fair is packed with hundreds of unique and exciting cultural activities, as well as a wide range of artistic programs that include plays, dance performances, contemporary cinematic showings, and visual arts exhibits. There will be symposiums, roundtable discussions, conferences, book readings and presentations, awards ceremonies, and a number of other professional, academic, and literary programs.

The Havana Book Fair isn't just for adults, however. Families will also find plenty of children's events and activities in the children's area of the fair. Here there are a number of activities designed not only to provide fun and entertainment, but to help encourage children and youth to enjoy and participate in literature and the arts.

Since its creation in 1982, the Havana Book Fair has been the most important event to happen in the Cuban publishing movement each year. As much a cultural event as a literary one, the fair works to showcase the many facets of life in Cuba and Latin America. Very few events in the world work so hard to bring together readers with individuals from every area of the publishing and writing world, and 2013 To Read Is to Grow will be no different.
