The 2022 Book Fair
The International Book Fair in Costa Rica is a place where people can come to learn about the importance of reading and writing. However, it is a place where people can come to see all the different books that are available for purchase.
The International Book Fair of Costa Rica was created in 1984 by the National Library of Costa Rica with the objective of promoting reading and literacy. The fair has been held for more than 30 years and has become an important event for writers, publishers and readers alike.
The main objective of the fair is to promote literacy and reading among people from all walks of life. It provides a space for everyone to come together and enjoy literature, poetry, essays, novels, comics, children’s books or any other type of written work.
