|37 New Publications From the Ministry of Culture
A total of 37 new books will be put into circulation by the publishing unit of the Secretary of State for Culture at the 11th International Book Fair of Santo Domingo 2008 which will open on April 21.
The International Book Fair of Santo Domingo 2008, in its eleventh edition, will be dedicated this year to Emilio Rodríguez Demorizi, the Dominican Republic’s most prolific of historians. The Guest of Honor this year will be the Association of Caribbean States.
The books being published this year for the Book Fair belong to the publishing unit of the Culture Ministry: National Publishing House, Ferilibro Publishing and Secretary of State for Culture Publishing. In addition, there is Angeles de Fierro, a non-profit publisher established in San Francisco de Macorís and financed by the Culture Ministry to publish writers in the northern part of the country and Rumbo Sur, a new publishing label created to publish and distribute the work of writers in the southern region.
Emilio Rodríguez Demorizi, to whom this year’s book fair is dedicated, is the protagonist of one of these books. Historian Héctor Luis Martínez has prepared two selected anthologies titled “Emilio Rodríguez Demorizi: History, Art and Culture.” One is printed as a traditional deluxe hardcover and one is in paperback. Martínez selected the text and wrote the introduction to the book.
“The History of the Caribbean” by Frank Moya Pons, considered the key book at the event in that the Association of Caribbean States is to be the Guest of Honor at the fair.
The remaining book titles to be presented at this cultural festival are the following:
• “Colloquiums 2008 The traditional collection of speeches that were given at the 2007 Book Fair
