La Casa Encendida is pleased to announce the first edition of Book Friends, a children's book fair and art festival designed especially with little ones in mind.
In recent years, children's literature has become more experimental and varied than ever. Book Friends captures this moment of amazing creativity with a select group of publishers that specialise in different areas, such as illustrated volumes, educational/informative texts, experimental formats and new takes on traditional fairytales. During the Christmas holidays, our courtyard will become an open lab where different specialised publishers will share the space with activities, shows, workshops and hands-on projects to help boys and girls discover that books (and art, creativity and imagination) can be wonderful friends.
- Tuesday 27 December, 5–8 pm
- Wednesday 28, Thursday 29 and Friday 30 December, 10:30 am–2 pm and 4–8 pm
