BIENNIAL OF BOOK IN RIO DE JANEIRO

Rio de Janeiro /International Book Biennial of Rio de Janeiro reaches its 18th edition, its simbolic age majority, ready to challenge the crisis that plagues Brazil and overturns in the young public.

Considered one of the most important events  of literature in Brazil, together with the Sao Paulo fair, the Biennial, which has just opened its doors in Riocentro, in the west of Rio, focuses on this call in Brazilian writers and “youtubers”, become in a phenomenon of sales among the youngest.

Only a dozen international authors are confirmed them at the Biennale, including the British Paula Hawkins (“The Girl on the Train”), and the Americans Karin Slaughter (“Ciega”) and Victoria Schwab (“A darker shade of magic“). 

The organizers have planned a program 40 percent larger than the last edition, held in 2015, and they hope to convene some 700,000 people until the closing, on 10 September.

About 900 publishers and 330 authors are expected to attend.

The challenge is to conquer the youth audience, which consumes half the books sold in Brazil, where in recent years there has been a drop in publishing sales, 11 percent in 2016, according to sector estimates (September 1, 2017, EFE / Practice Spanish)
