Next November 26 begins the Guadalajara International Book Fair and among the countries that will be present, is Peru.
With the aim of endorsing its leading presence in the Guadalajara International Fairof which it was a guest country for the second time in 2021, and to position its publishing industry in the Mexican market, Peru will arrive at the most important editorial meeting in Spanish-speaking to be held from November 26 to December 4, with the most representative of its culture and editorial production.
With an extension of 90m2, the booth from Peru is inspired by the “Quipu”, an ancestral artifact that dates back to the Inca Empire, and whose term means “knot” in Quechua, is used to represent the connection between the ancestral and the current, as well as the union and strength of the native peoples. In the booth located in the international zone of the FIL Guadalajarabetween KK and LL streets, a bookstore will be installed where the visitor will find around a thousand titles from one hundred publishers from different regions of this countryin addition to spaces for Business Roundtables that seek to promote business meetings between book agents and professionals from Peru and Mexico.
As is tradition, Peruvian authors from different literary genres will arrive at the Perla Tapatia, such as the poet Katherine Medina, the writer Jorge Eslava, the narrator Fernando Iwasaki and the graphic artist Jessica Quispe, who will have interventions in the Poetry Hall, Ecos de la FIL, Latinoamérica Viva, Libros al Gusto and in the Salón del Cómic, respectively. In addition, at the Peru stand there will be a cultural program made up of twenty activities including book presentations, storytelling, poetry recitals in Spanish and native languages, conversations and a Peruvian music show to close the fair.
Likewise, visitors will be able to learn about the 48 native languages of the Inca country, through the Sound Map of Indigenous or Original Languagesan interactive tool developed by the Ministry of Culture of Peru and exhibited within the framework of the “International Decade of Indigenous Languages”. Similarly, with the collaboration of the National Library of Peru, an artistic installation will be presented in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of trilceone of the emblematic works of the poet César Vallejo.
