Guadalajara International Book Fair 2023 is now taking place at Expo Guadalajara, Mexico, from November 25th to December 3rd, 2023.
The Guadalajara International Book Fair is the most important publishing gathering in Ibero-America. It is also an amazing cultural festival. Created 37 years ago by the University of Guadalajara, the Fair is aimed at professionals and the general public alike, a characteristic that sets it apart from other book fairs around the globe. With business as one of its main goals, it is also a cultural festival in which literature plays a major role including a program where authors from all continents and languages participate, and a forum for the academic discussion of the major issues of our time.
For nine days, people willingly stand in long lines to listen to their favourite authors, the book industry makes Guadalajara its beating heart and the whole city is filled with the music, arts, cinema and theatre from the featured Guest of Honor which this year is European Union.

Like every year, IBA could not miss the important event of the Salone del Libro in Turin which took place from 18th to 22nd May at the Lingotto area.
The Salone is one of the most significant book fairs in Italy and it involves professionals working in the fascinating field of publishing from all over the world, but also readers and culture lovers.
As usual, IBA attended the Rights center of the fair, representing some of the most creative Italian publishing houses (CSA Editrice, Planet Book, Aporema Edizioni, Armando Curcio Editore…) and presenting their books to foreign publishing houses and editors.
This year was particularly interesting and fruitful, as many publishers (mainly from South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Canada and many more) showed their interest towards some of the titles presented by IBA. In particular, they were impressed by Elena Mora’s young age, success and works, or by Giulia Falcini’s manuscript about the Nushu, by the fantasy of Alessandra Cinardi with her “Vita” trilogy, by the authenticity of Angelina Brasacchio with her “Tales from the south” (already published in the UK) and “Tales from the oil mill”, but also by some books dealing with contemporary central issues like “Gaslighting”, “The strategic parent” and “The path”. These are just some examples of the books proposed abroad, so it is possible to assume that the negotiations started on those days at the Rights center will hopefully lead to some satisfactory results in terms of rights selling in the next few months.
The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation promotes the dissemination of Italian publishing and cinematographic works abroad by providing incentives to translation and dubbing/subtitling initiatives, as a strategic tool for promoting Italian language and culture abroad.
The Foreign Ministry provides two types of financial incentives:
Proposals shall be submitted annually to the Italian Cultural Institutes and the Italian diplomatic and consular Mission abroad, according to the Call regulations and procedures.
For the year 2023, it is intended to award five PRIZES in the amount of Euro 5,000 each:
- 1 for the French language;
- 1 for the English language;
- 1 for the Spanish language;
- 1 for the German language;
- 1 for the Chinese language.

More households in the European Union spend more on books, newspapers and stationery than they do on package holidays. This was one of the surprising statistics released by the EU. A survey of people aged from 20 to 74 in 15 EU countries between 2008 to 2015 found that the average time spent reading books ranges from two minutes a day in France to 13 minutes in Estonia.
