Today, Mallorca celebrates the Dia de Sant Jordi, elsewhere known as International Book Day. Schools all over the island will have bookshops coming in and setting up their displays. In Manacor, a Fira del Llibre will be held at the Claustre del Convent de Sant Vicenç Ferrer from 09h00 to 20h00. In Palma, the Dia del Llibre will be celebrated with a display by all municipal libraries of Palma, in Plaça Cort. There will also be story-telling activities at the Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró.
Palma will also offer a guided tour under the heading Robert Graves a Palma, albeit next Tuesday, April 27th. This tour will be held under the guidance of Sarah Brierley. If you are interested in participating you are invited to make your reservation by telephone (971.495.346).
By the way, if you are buying a book today, chances are that you will be offered a discount of 10 % off the purchase price, and will probably be offered a red rose as well. Makes it worth it, then.
