Promoting Spanish literature in Morocco, Spain will be the guest of honor at the 25th Casablanca International Publishing and Book Fair.
Rabat – Spain will participate in the Casablanca International Publishing and Book Fair as guest of honor, held February 7-17 with an extensive program of activities bringing together 40 Spanish and Moroccan authors.
The program will honor Moroccan writers who write in Spanish. The fair has planned two round tables under the title “Spanish, more southern,” which will gather those authors.
This year’s book fair will also pay tribute to Juan Goytisolo and Jose-Miguel Ullan during the conference titled “Claiming the Count Don Julian, a homage to Juan Goytisolo.”
Concerning the arts, the Spanish pavilion will host several exhibitions: A photographic exhibition called “Campos de Nijar” and “Juan Goytisolo Almeria,” and other photo exhibitions.
There will also be a photo exhibition on Arabic-Andalusian manuscripts in Spanish libraries, a key memory of a fundamental component of Spanish identity.
In a 280 square meter pavilion, the Spanish delegation will display 700 works, including samples of recently published books.
Morocco and Spain hope to strengthen their diplomatic and strategic bilateral relations through cultural activities, especially after Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez’s first visit to Morocco in November 2018.
