The Guadalajara Book Fair, catalogued as the most important in the Spanish-speaking world, opened its doors this Sunday in Mexico, where Cuadernos Papiro Publishing House from Holguin presented its literary productions.
Yanelis Esquijarosa, designer of the publishing house, said to Radio Angulo digital: “we have brought five new titles among which are “La forma de los días” by writer Kenia Leyva, and “La bailarina española”, written by José Martí, with a Spanish and English version.
“Credo” by Venezuelan Aquiles Nazoa, “Moforibale”, work of Cuban writers to the Orischas. In the design prevail the wild flowers that are used in book arts with the fretwork and fabrics.
This is Papiro’s most recent title and it is joined by the creation that emerged from the Papermakers’ Meeting”, said Esquijarosa.
The Holguin delegation’s extensive program included a posthumous tribute to the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, with the participation of Cuba solidarity groups and Cuban diplomatic personnel accredited in Mexico.
“On Tuesday, November 28, there will be a meeting with cardboard publishers, coordinated with Ediciones Vigías de Matanzas,” said the designer.

The designer Esquijarosa is also accompanied by Manuel Arias Silveria, director of the publishing house.
