Este viernes día Internacional del Libro

librosEn 1996, la UNESCO declaró Día Internacional del Libro al 23 de abril, en conmemoración por la coincidente muerte de tres grandes escritores: William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra e Inca Garcilaso de la Vega; los tres acaecidos en 1616. Ese mismo año nació William Wordsworth (1850) y falleció Josep Pla (1981).

A pesar que fue en épocas recientes la oficialización del festejo, en España, desde 1926, se había decretado como “Fiesta del Libro Español” el día 7 de octubre, fecha en la que se creía que había nacido el creador del Quijote. Al mismo tiempo, en Cataluña se acostumbraba regalar durante el día, libros y rosas rojas a los amigos y seres queridos. Una visión menos material del actual San Valentín.

La intención de crear el festejo fue la de inculcar el hábito por la lectura, la apreciación literaria y fomentar el respeto hacia el derecho de autor.  Es por ello que cada año, la UNESCO declara como Capital Mundial del Libro a diferentes ciudades del globo. En este 2010 le corresponde a Liublania, capital de Eslovenia.

Mientras tanto,  México no queda atrás en la celebración: el próximo viernes 23 de abril se realizará la “Fiesta del Libro y la Rosa” en el Centro Cultural Universitario, ubicado en  Ciudad Universitaria (UNAM). Se llevarán a cabo ventas de libros, se regalarán rosas, y habrá ciclos de lectura, cine y poesía. El horario es de las 9 a las 24 hrs, contando con transporte dentro del campus hasta la 1 am del día siguiente. La entrada es libre y para el público en general.

Por otro lado, en el corredor Zócalo- Pino Suárez del Sistema de Transporte Metro, se realizarán eventos culturales relacionados con la festividad y se venderán textos literarios a costos accesibles y con descuento. Por única ocasión en el año, las librerías del también llamado Un Paseo Por Los Libros, cerrarán sus puertas hasta las 23 horas.

Sin lugar a dudas, una fecha que los amantes de la literatura no pueden perderse. Las excusas no tienen cabida aquí.
