The 28th Book Fair in Las Tunas concluded with the award of the Principito 2019 Contest, won by the local writer Saimy K. Torres, with My Brother Pablo. Panels, readings, gatherings, presentations of texts and other proposals were developed for the delight of the public.


The book Gaby en París y otros viajes was also launched by writer Maritza Batista, winner in the previous calendar of the El Principito contest, which honors the famous character of Antoine de Saint Exúpery and recognizes who dedicate their letters to the smallest at home, in the children's space Tesoro de Papel, at the end of the day.

The Fair said goodbye in this land leaving in its wake memories of activities such as Con Luz de Estrellas, which from the Juan Cristóbal Nápoles Ibero-American Center of Décima, honored Eduardo Heras León, National Prize for Literature and Edition, to whom it was dedicated, and also to El Cucalambé (considered the greatest bucolic poet of the 19th century in Cuba), on the 190th anniversary of his birth.

With the guidance of the writer Odalys Leyva Rosabal, this space hosted outstanding artists of the province's such as Carlos Tamayo, Ana Rosa Díaz, Lucy Maestre, Xiomara Maura Rodríguez, María Liliana Celorrio, Renael González, Carlos Esquivel and Andrés Casanova, who read fragments of their works and shared with singer-songwriters Iraida Wílliams Urgüellés, Ríchard Gómez and young Ray Nelson Ponce de León.

Another unforgettable space was El boulevard de los capuchinos, an humoristic show with guests of different artistic manifestations, together with the promotion of literature, cartoons made at the time, trova and varied readings.
