For the first time in two years, Yucatán will celebrate its annual book fair with in-person events. 

The 10th edition of the Feria Internacional de la Lectura Yucatán, or Filey, runs March 26 to April 3.

However, of the 450 events, workshops and activities announced, the majority will be streamed via Youtube and Facebook. 

Among the in-person events is a panel titled “Constelaciones Litearias,” or Literary Constellations. 

The panel will feature renowned authors Elena Poniatowska, Margo Glantz, David Huerta, as well as Cristina Rivera Garza.

Also in attendance at the event will be Rosa Beltrán, who will be awarded the 2022 José Emilio Pacheco award for literary excellence.

The Filey book fair was canceled in 2020 and held virtually in 2021 as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

The central theme of this year’s fair has been announced to be utopias.

“For this year’s fair we are exploring the idea of utopia and the possibility of a better world full of men and women of action ready to improve our global society,” said Filey director, Enrique Matín Briceño.
