For six days, BOOKS take center stage of this festival that makes the vastest selection of publications available to the public. National and international authors are also invited to enrich the cultural and professional agenda of the fair.

In this 10th edition, Mexico is our special guest country.

The International Book Fair of Panama has not only become the most important cultural event in the country, but its content and wide appeal has also made it the most prominent venue for the cultural industry in the region.

As part of this event, and as is tradition, there will be professional workshops for librarians and teachers, with an emphasis on encouraging reading in the classroom, and conferences on copyright and culture. Additional scheduled events and attractions include book presentations by guest authors, literary discussions, an art show by the guest country, and the popular children's literature pavilion.
