The aim of this edition is to vindicate and celebrate the freedom that books provide to give voice to individuals and groups on the road to gender equality and the fight against discrimination based on race and sexual orientation.
Program of the Setmana del llibre en català 2023
The intercultural mediator, dynamizer and playwright Víctor Uwagba will give the opening speech that will kick off the annual event of Catalan literature. In addition, the program is full of activities ranging from storytelling for children to book presentations with the participation of authors such as Imma Monsó, Síliva Soler, Carlota Gurt, Junio Siva and Xavier Grasset, among others.
There will also be recitals such as the poetry book by Joan Tomàs, winner of the Jocs Florals 2023, workshops for children and musical performances such as that of the Mallorcan singer Joan Xanguito solo. In parallel, books will be released in the streets of Palma. With this proposal, the Setmana del llibre en català 2023 hopes to bring together all lovers of reading in the Misericòrdia, where they will also have at their disposal a wide gastronomic offer from the hand of a ‘food truck’.
