Don Quixote in Hungary – An ILAB Pop Up Book Fair at the Institute Cervantes in Budapest on UNESCO World Book & Copyright Day

23 April is a symbolic date for world literature. On this day in 1616 Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, William Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega died. Centuries later this day marked the date of birth or death of prominent authors like Vladimir Nabokov, Haldor Laxness, Maurice Druon and Manuel Mejía Vallejo. And each year, on 23 April, UNESCO celebrates World Book and Copyright Day with a series of worldwide events. In 2015, ILAB and its members are part of the worldwide celebrations! On four continents and throughout the day ILAB booksellers will hold Pop Up Book Fairs – bookish flash mobs - at the most unexpected places. And the Hungarian rare book dealers have come up with a very special idea to celebrate UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day in their capital. They will pop up at Institute Cervantes in Budapest which is located in one of the most beautiful mansions of the city.
