Institucional

This year, Saint George’s Day is the day after Easter Monday, which altered the schedule for the activities of the centers and faculties so that these take place during school days. Therefore, the activities for Saint George’s day at the UB will take place between April and May, almost a whole month of activities regarding the day of the rose and the book.

 

 

Book stands with the new volumes by Editions and Publications of the UB

On April 23, as the center of the program for Saint George’s Day, Editions and Publications of the UB will have a book stand in rambla de Catalunya with Provença street, and another in the Historical Building, in Gran Via, next to the Pati de Lletres. The stands, open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., will show the new publications and a wide representation of the books of the University of Barcelona. In rambla de Catalunya, some of the authors will sign their books on science, culture or current issues. Please check the times of the signatures.

On the occasion of Saint George’s Day, Editions and Publications of the UB offers a 40 % discount in all books of its catalogue for the PDI and PAS members of the UB.
