Books hold a place of honour in Uruguayan culture. Every year since 1978, readers and writers alike gather in Montevideo for this book fair. The guest of honour is not limited to one country—last year it was Cuba—yet each writing style has its place, from novels to theatre, fiction and poetry.
During these two weeks—a rarely long literary festival—you are welcome to attend numerous lectures, book signing sessions and writing workshops, meet authors, and maybe even find a publishing house if you are an author yourself, during this two-week festival—a rare duration for this type of event. A contest for new writers will also be organized but don't forget, all manuscripts must be submitted in Spanish!
