The Aragonese Book Fair (FLA) started its second day with the visit of authorities, led by the mayor of Monzón, Isaac Claver, and in which the councilor for Fairs, Miguel Hernández, members of the municipal corporation and various representatives were present autonomous, provincial and regional. On the first day of the fair, the 2,500 visitors were exceeded. Many of them, about 300 people, have attended the literary meeting on the Culture Train, which left from Zaragoza.
The number of visitors reflects for the mayor of Monzón, Isaac Claver, “what the FLA means for the people, who enjoy this bridge of the Constitution by coming to Monzón and experiencing first-hand the great cultural meeting that takes place here every year “And that, he added,” is a great sign that, even in times of a pandemic, it is more alive than ever. “
At 10.45 am, more than 300 people arrived at the fair from Zaragoza on the Culture Train. In addition to acquiring some copies, they could attend presentations such as “Volar Alto”, the latest work by Jorge Sanz, or “A la mía”, by Marian Ristol. They also had the opportunity to participate in the calligraphy workshops or, the little ones, in the children’s workshops, and stop at the different exhibitions presented in this edition.
Included in the price of the ticket, travelers took the opportunity to discover the Monumental Nativity Scene and take a visit with a historical reenactment about the life of the Templars in the Castle of Monzón.
