Venezuela, the country featured as the guest of honor at the 15th Havana Book Fair to take place in the San Carlos de la Cabaña fortress, is presenting Cuban readers with 1,200 titles (plus one million copies) by classic and contemporary authors.(...)

Venezuelan writers present at the Fair, led by Minister of Culture Farruco Sesto, include authors Carlos Nogueras, Humberto Mata, Luis Britto, Laura Antillano and Stefanía Mosca; poets Tarek William and William Osuna, and filmmaker and poet Edmundo Aray, who will actively participate in the Culture in Defense of Humanity conferences, the Tribu de la Poesía (Poetry Tribe) poetry readings, and panel discussions on culture, national identity and spirituality, and Miranda, Bolívar and Martí: the historical foundations of Latin American integration.

Not forgotten was the deep-rooted relationship between two greats of Cuban and world literature, Nicolás Guillén and Alejo Carpentier, with discussion panels and the publication of their work. Several titles by Carpentier are being presented by CERLAG: Visión de América (Vision of America), The Kingdom of this World, The Lost Steps and Explosion in a Cathedral.
