With April facing its final stretch, the eyes –and the hearts– of the people of Madrid are set on the month of May, during which some of the most important dates of our calendar take place, such as the San Isidro festivities and the Feria del Book –of which we already know the poster–. For the latter there is still a little more than a month left, but it is not necessary to wait that long to attend a literary event of these characteristics: From today until Sunday Arganzuela celebrates its own Book Fair.
This year the event celebrates its second edition in which 15 bookstores from the district will participate, two more than in 2022, which will be distributed in their booths along the Madrid Río esplanade, next to Matadero (Paseo de la Chopera, 6 and 10). New this year, there will be a central stage that will host different activities such as poetry recitals and book presentations.
In total, there are more than 20 programmed activities -can be consulted in this document-, to which are added the nearly 60 signatures of writers and writers that will take place during the four days How long does the fair last? All signatures can be consulted at this link.
