Braga’s Book Fair, which will take place entirely in a digital environment until September 3, will start virtually next Friday and will have 20 virtual bookstore exhibitors spread across the city’s virtual avenues that later arrive at the client’s home with the support from CTT.
The event has a budget of 25 thousand euros but this year the organization bears all the costs of registering booksellers and used bookstores on the platform, as well as all costs in the process for the transition to digital and maintenance.
Over the 60 days of the cultural event, the primary communication channel for all communication about the digital fair, with free access, will be made through the Facebook social network – https://www.facebook.com/FeiraDoLivroDeBraga -,
where visitors can participate in hobbies to win books or participate in the “Agora Pergugo Eu!”, “Books with RUM”, “Artist Video” or “Film Cycle” initiatives.
On the first day of the fair, July 3, at 9:30 pm, the initiative “Books with RUM (Rádio Universidade do Minho)”, with José Teixeira, is scheduled, and a conversation by streaming with the National Plan commissioner is also planned. Reading 2027, Teresa Calçada, and moderation by Tito Couto.
