During April and May Caracas becomes more literary than ever as the International Book Fair invades the city.
For bookworms and their friends.
One of the most important literary events in Venezuela takes place during the months of March and April: the annual International Book Fair of Venezuela, a celebration held at varying venues around the city, such as the Teresa Carreño Theater, the Experimental University of the Arts, Museum Square, the Museum of Science, the National Cinematheque, the Museum of Fine Arts or the Axis of Good Living. During the event traditional book stalls abound, and various activities such as lectures, book presentations, poetry readings, encounters with writers, workshops and children's activities take place. In addition, the nearby town of Chacao hosts the Reading Festival in April, also full of activities and drawing around a hundred publishers.
