The last four years, “Fondo Guanajuato” has been present in the best book fairs in México, such as the International Mining Palace Book Fair, the Zócalo Book Fair, the UG Book Fair, the Monterrey Book Fair, the FENAL (Feria Nacional del Libro) and the FIL in Guadalajara, which is the most important throughout the country.

Finally, many activities will be carried out by the state of Guanajuato, during this celebration, such as:

  • The presentation the following titles: “Gallo que no Canta” by Mauricio Miranda y “Quién es Paola Vargas” by Montserrat Campos, are both edited by editorial Ficticia.
  • The “Arte y Culturas populares de Guanajuato” magazine will also be presented during this edition of the FIL, as well as the book “Entre fantasmas, brujas y miedo”, that surges as a result of the intense work made through Guanajuato’s State Cultural Insitute “Children Writers Workshop”.

The Guadalajara International Book Fair is not only the most important publishing event in Ibero-America, but it is also an amazing cultural festival.

This yeaar’s Guest of Honor is Latin America.
