38th Catalan Book Week

The Catalan Book Week is one of the most important cultural events in the country. Apart from gathering the largest offer of books in Catalan, it favours direct contact between booksellers, editors and readers, who can find novelties and collections from each label. It offers a wide range of activities (presentations, readings, literary tours, storytelling…) for children and adults, who also contribute to promote reading in Catalan.

This is the first time the University Vives Network, which gathers 22 universities from Catalan-speaking areas, has its own stand in the Catalan Book Week, aiming to give visibility to the task carried out by university academic publishing houses regarding knowledge transfer and the quality of their publications.
