The International Day of the Book

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.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: April 22nd, 2010. The time was 16:21:30.

  1. I discovered your blog while looking for a photo of the Seizin Press to illustrate a post for my class blog, Castígate.
    We are a group of language teachers from the Ramon Llull High School, who work together on a common language project and publish in Catalan, Spanish, English and German in a class blog for 12-year-old students. I would like to congratulate you for your photo log. I would also like to ask your permission to reproduce some of your photos in Castígate and to add your blog to our links.
    We also celebrated Sant Jordi at school. By Monday, several posts and photos will be uploaded to our blog.
    Congratulations again for your great work!
