Bienal do Livro
Biennial, Anhembi Exhibition Pavilion, São Paulo, Brazil, 22–31 August.
Just as books transform the world, the 23nd São Paulo International Book Biennial transforms the city of São Paulo in August. Under one roof and covering a total area of 60,000 m², the biennial brings together Brazil’s main publishing houses, bookstores, and distributors, which present the most important editorial launches to some 800,000 visitors and offers a unique diversity of titles. In addition to being a place for doing business, the event gathers representatives from the creative and production chain. The event attracts a widely-varied audience, young people and adults. A diversified cultural programme ensures these 10 days are very busy and encourages a taste for books and reading.
