International Book Fair
February 1 - February 11
Cuba’s editorial and publishing industries most significant event. The International book fair takes places in February every year. It is conceived as a space of dialogue between authors from all over the world.
A great time of the year to visit Cuba. Havana and many other cities around Cuba turn into a huge book fair. The main event, hosted at the Cabana Fortress overlooking Havana from across the bay, becomes a gathering place for authors and avid readers from all over the world. Cultural institutions and libraries spring into life, with seminars, debates and presentations taking place at every other corner of the cities.
A huge celebration of literature and cultural difference rather than a commercial book selling event, the International Book Fair, unlike many other book fairs, is not held on a closed doors convention centre. It is a street event for the whole family
