Night of Books and International Book Day – Madrid

April 22, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - April 23, 2016 @ 10:00 pm CEST

International Book Day

The next Saturday, April 23, the International Book Day is celebrated in Madrid. This year’s event will be even more special because it coincides with the celebration of the 400th anniversary of the death of Miguel de Cervantes. The Community of Madrid together with municipalities, will promote more than 500 events in 43 cities across the region.

As traditionally at this time, on 22 April, they organize the Night of Books in Madrid, when “books go out to meet readers through the streets of Madrid”. There will be readings, debates, workshops, theater, plus discounts on all bookstores in city center.

Some events for these two days:

  • Continued reading of ‘Don Quixote’: 04/22/2016, in Círculo de Bellas Artes
  • Talk with Spanish authors: 4/22/2016, in the Real Casa de Correos
  • Concert at the Museo del Prado: 04/22/2016, Luca Giordano’s Dome
  • Microteatro on the street: 04/22/2016, by the Paseo del Prado, Cibeles and Neptuno, from 18:45 to 21:00h
  • Firms of authors and libraries discounts: until 04/23/2016, in bookstores in central Madrid
  • Don Quixote in Lego: 04/23/2016 and 24/04/2016 days at the Museo del Ferrocarril (Railway Museum)

This year the International Book Day features the guided visit by Convent of the Trinitarias where Cervantes is buried, which also coincides with a large number of events for the Cervantes Festival in the Barrio de las Letras visit highlights. It starts the day 22, but runs until December 31.

So between Friday 22 and Saturday 23, the book lovers have an unmissable meeting in the center of Madrid, where they can combine culture and fun through various proposals in different parts of the city.
