Boquete´s Library Foundation welcomes all public in general to participate on the II Book Fair of Boquete 2017 to be celebrated at the Library of Boquete starting on September 28th until October 1st under the slogan:
“Books…windows to the universe”
WHAT IS IT?
The II Book Fair of Boquete 2017 is a cultural event covering a wide range of activities for all ages and interests including book sales under different editorials and libraries, national and international authors, conferences, workshops, tale storytelling, artistic presentations and much more.
CHILDREN AND YOUNG
The II Book Fair of Boquete 2017 will include workshops oriented specifically to children and teenagers including artistic presentations and gathering. There will be a reading marathon about novel ¨Maria¨ and Literature gathering where participants will share classic books such as “Cien años de soledad”, “Pedro Páramo”, “Rebeldes” among others.
As an innovation, this year we will include a contest about production of narrative text titled “Cuento maravilloso” (Wonderful tale), poem presentation of “Stella Sierra a 100 años de su natalicio” and also a fun costume contest titled “Tu disfraz cuenta un cuento” (Your costume tells a story).
The Library will also feature a decorated section to encourage children to preserve natural resources. Decoration will include trees, animals and forests representative of Boquete.
GIVE A BOOK, GIVE A DREAM
During the II Book Fair of Boquete 2017 we want to give children the opportunity of having a new book. Many of them really need it. For that purpose we have created the program ¨Regala un libro, regala un sueño¨ (Give a book, give a dream) where you can make a difference. You can buy a new book and donate that book as a gift to a child. Many kids would benefit tremendously of your kindness.
