Free Books and Roses: Experience a Spanish-style World Book day!

Who doesn’t like a free book? On 25th April, Instituto Cervantes Dublin invites you to a very special World Book Day celebration with poetry, music and bookcrossing. Experience a Spanish-style World Book Day exchanging books and roses in the auditorium.

Performances will be provided by the trio of artists formed by Andalusian poet Carmen Camacho; Irish poet and translator Keith Payne and Galician singer-songwriter Su Garrido.

Carmen Camacho live-writes in Seville, in her own way, with a number of poetry collections published (Campo de fuerza, La mujer del tiempo, 777 and Arrojada) her trajectory has also dived into flash fiction (Vuelo doméstico) and her wittiness has bloomed in the books of aphorisms  Zona Franca (2016) and Minimás.

Keith Payne was the Ireland Chair of Poetry Bursary Award winner for 2015-2016, he has translated several Galician poetry books into English as well as presented his own poetry collections, and for this event he has translated Camacho’s work, so the Irish audience can get close to her universe.

Singer-songwriter Su Garrido will bring the tunes. With an interesting and eclectic music career, she will contribute with her delicate art and powerful presence on stage.

What is bookcrossing? The exchange could not be simpler: pick a book, log it on and leave it for another reader to find, read and put it back in circulation.

World Book Day 25th April from 12pm to 1pm. Instituto Cervantes Dublin. Lincoln House. Dublin 2  The event is free but booking in advance is essential!   RSVP: or 01 631 15 33/55
