From June 19 to 22, the 22nd Old Bookstore Fair will take place. This year brings, in addition to the sale of unpublished, used, old and out-of-catalog books, a play and other surprises.

This 2024 changes location: the appointment will be at the ECU (UNR University Cultural Space) located at San Martin 750. A heritage and cultural space so that, from Wednesday to Saturday, you can visit while enjoying the Old Bookstore Fair .

Admission will be free and it will be open, starting Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday will be the inauguration at 5 p.m. and coincides with a public poetry recital, an activity already scheduled by ECU: a poetry reading in defense of the Public University.

On Thursday the 20th, at 6:30 p.m. there will be the play “Approximations. Music and poetry.” Participating: Natalia Nardiello, Jonatan Boco and Raul Valentini. It is a story where music and words intersect and where poetry is challenged by song. Love, desire, fantasy and frustration are exposed in every word. A dialogue between Spinetta and Girondo or a counterpoint between Robert Johnson and Alejandra Pizarnik.

As always there will be presentations, exhibitions and plenty of reading options. There will be book offers from 2 thousand pesos.

The Old Bookstore Fair, which has already become a classic for Rosario, was conceived with the idea of ​​putting together an occasional fair. The initiative arises as a cultural manifestation in which local bookstores participate with the aim of revaluing old and used items.

Since then it has developed year after year and the most renowned booksellers in Rosario have joined.

Marijó Haquín, from Argonautas, one of the bookstores that organize and participate in the Fair, indicated that this year 14 bookstores will participate, both virtual and local. The distribution of the stands will be in the side wings of the ECU. “The place is beautiful,” she noted regarding the new meeting space.

“The material we have is totally diverse, it is used from a recent or old edition, or unique editions and then also with respect to the themes there is literature, research, philosophy, art and we always try to recover production from Rosario, from recent authors or as materials older,” he indicated.

“We see a lot of young people and we saw that a lot in the last two fairs,” she said, surprised and excited by the scope. She also indicated that what people look for most is literature and that many wait for the fair to find those unique books.
