El Dia del Llibre i la Rosa
Saturday, April 20, 2019
Join in a celebration of this traditional Catalan holiday of books and roses.
El Dia del Llibre i la Rosa (Day of the Book and the Rose) is a Catalan tradition of exchanging books and roses currently celebrated in Spain and Latin America. Additionally, UNESCO has declared it the International Day of the Book and Authors’ Rights.
All ages are invited to join Anuncia Escala, Felix Miret-Rovira, Lluis Soldevila, and other members of the Casal Català d’Oregon to learn about this tradition and enjoy live music and readings of Catalan authors and other nationalities.
Participants are invited to bring a favorite poem to read, and everyone will leave with a rose and a book by a Catalan author, including bilingual books for children.
