Havana, Feb 10 – The International Book Fair Havana-2015 for the third consecutive year will be streamed online, sources of the organizing committee confirmed today.
“The purpose is to share with the world the beauty and dynamics of Cuba’s Book Fair, and surpass the half a million followers it had last year”, said the poet Karel Leyva.
The conditions for digital transmission -with an online and real-time connection through the website Cuba Literaria- are ready three days before the beginning of Cuba’s big publishing party, one of the largest in Latin America.
For now, videos of past editions, during which live conferences, launches and debates were broadcast, are already available in YouTube and other channels.
The upcoming International Book Fair will open to the public on 13 February, but its official inauguration will take place a day before in the Havana Morro-Cabaña Park, with India as the guest of honor.
