The Catalan Book Market
January 27, 2022
1:00 pm
Register now to learn about Catalan literature and culture, the 2022 London Book Fair Spotlight, in the Livres Canada Books' upcoming webinar on the Catalan book market.
Located in the northeastern region of Spain, Catalonia boasts a unique linguistic and literary tradition with ties to Spanish history and culture. Perhaps best known for the region’s capital city, Barcelona, the region’s flourishing publishing sector has helped to foster the interest in, and knowledge of, Catalan language and literature around the world.
With an open and vibrant culture, Catalonia’s writers and readers are familiar with numerous international literary and cultural traditions, and Catalan publishers are increasingly making inroads into other markets through translation and the spread of Catalan music and film. The region’s linguistic duality and cultural diversity present an excellent opportunity for Canadian publishers interested in buying Catalan titles or in selling Canadian titles in English or French to Catalan publishers.
Join presenters Gonçal López-Pampló Rius and Marina Espasa for a webinar exploring the Catalan publishing sector, including:
an overview of the Catalan book market covering the state of publishing, key players, distribution, and retail
reading and book buying habits
fiction, non-fiction, children's and young adult literature sectors
Catalan titles available in English and French
translation and rights opportunities
and much more!
This live webinar will be followed by an interactive Q&A period with the hosts.
*Presentation in English with simultaneous French interpretation.
