Casimiro Fernández celebrates Book Day with camera citizens, participating in the Reading Marathon

The provincial deputy for Culture and Citizenship of the Provincial Council of Seville, Casimiro Fernández, today shared the celebration of International Book Day with the citizens of the Sevillian town of Camas, a municipality where he went to participate in the Reading Marathon organized by the City Hall and the Rafael Alberti Municipal Library, in the Tent installed in the Plaza Nuestra Señora de los Dolores.

The reading selected by the deputy as a contribution to this Camas Reading Marathon has been ‘Nature’, one of the poems that make up ‘Ocnos’, in which Luis Cernuda demonstrates, through meditation and surprise on the display of a leaf, the nostalgia for eternity and the tension with temporal reality.

‘Bringing literature closer to the community and promoting reading, especially among the youngest layer of the population, undoubtedly finds a very powerful lever with a program like Encuentro con el Libro, for which the mayor of Camas, Víctor, must be congratulated Manuel Ávila, and the municipal delegate of Culture, Raúl Medina, in addition to all the technical staff that makes its implementation possible,’ said Fernández.

‘Reading more does not make us better people, but it gives us the necessary tools to be better, through empathy and understanding of the world around us. From the Provincial Council, aware of the power of the book, we are pioneers in supporting book fairs, the one in the capital and many of those held in the province. Furthermore, we are experiencing first-hand the objectives and challenges of the sector, through the call of the Literature Table of the Professional Forum of Culture, in order to see how we can from our Institution contribute to the functioning of the sector.’

Fernández has highlighted the work in favor of the book of the Archive and Publications Service of the Culture and Citizenship Area, ‘responsible, among other publications, for the reissue of ‘Ocnos’, in 2022, as a tribute to Luis Cernuda for the commemoration of 120 anniversary of his birth and the 60th anniversary of his death. A poet, Luis Cernuda, so linked to the Provincial Council, that I believe that the choice of his work for my reading is more than justified.
