From September 2nd to 11th, Catalan Book Week takes over the Avinguda de la Catedral for its 34th edition. One hundred and twenty seven book shops and publishers from Catalunya, Valencia and the Balearic Islands will be displaying the newest, top-selling Catalan books, as well as magazines and print media archive stocks of rare works. Hundreds of activities are planned throughout the week, including poetry readings, storytelling for children and literature discussions. This year’s event carries special weight, as Barcelona looks to strengthen its bid to become a member of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network as a City of Literature.
