The Catalan Book Week is the most important book fair and one of the first three cultural events that are celebrated in our country. It is now in its 36th edition.This year it will be held in Avinguda de la Catedral, from 7 o 16 September, with over 250 activities: tours, book presentations, dialogs with authors, literary dissemination activities, concerts, children's activities, etc. All thanks to the exhibitors and collaborating entities.

There is also an area for translated works: the module 17 (Plaça Nova/carrer del Bisbe) arranged by the Llibreria Francesa Francesca Jaimes, for the sale and exhibition of translation of original works of Catalan literature. These translations are in English, French, Italian and German, plus a range of other languages. There are also translations in Spanish, and a section dedicated to children's and youth literature, with a small library including shows, storytelling and workshops.

For the first time, the Evening of the Week is being organized (14 September), when times will be extended to twelve midnight, to stroll through the fair and enjoy a special program, and to buy books.
