Book Biennial: FGV is present at Brazil’s largest literary event
The Rio International Book Biennial is one of Brazil’s biggest literary events and FGV Press has taken part in it since its first edition. This year, the event will run from Friday, August 30 to September 8. Including both old favorites and new launches, FGV Press has sent more than 10,000 copies of its publications – over 2 metric tons of knowledge and research – to the Riocentro convention center for the 19th Rio Book Biennial.
During the 10-day event, FGV Press will have the opportunity to display practically its entire catalogue in a 60-square-meter booth in Riocentro’s Green Pavilion, where the Education Forum’s main stage also is. As well as displaying its books, FGV Press will participate in the fair’s official events. Special activities will also be held at its own booth.
The author of “Indians in Brazilian history,” part of FGV’s paperback collection, Professor Maria Regina Celestino, will take part in the Education Forum’s EduTalks on September 3, when she will present her book and research.
Professor Michael Freitas Mohallem, of the FGV´s Rio de Janeiro Law School and the organizer of a book titled “New measures against corruption,” will participate in Literary Café, a space where prominent authors will meet to debate a variety of topics, for a discussion called “The crooked paths of corruption.” The debate, organized by the biennial’s curator, will happen on Sunday, September 8.
FGV Press’ booth will also present the new FGV Digital High School website on September 2 and 3.
FGV Press’ booth is located at Rua O, 77, in the Green Pavilion. Riocentro is located at Avenida Salvador Allende, 6555, Barra da Tijuca. The event organizers recommend using public transportation to get to the venue and buying tickets in advance on the biennial’s website.
