Món Llibre 2011

Children’s Book Festival

This year’s Món Llibre, a free festival of literature aimed at children up to the age of 12, takes place on 9 and 10 April.

Of the many writers, illustrators and artists invited this year, Món Llibre is host to the Japanese illustrator Taro Gomi, Joan Garriga, the singer from Troba Kung-Fú, dancer and performance artist Sonia Gomez, and the physical theatre group Los Corderos, all demonstrating their own particular take on books.


This year’s festival brings together over 40 of Barcelona’s publishers of literature for children and young people, as well as the city’s libraries, represented by their Consortium. The CCCB and the MACBA will open their doors for the occasion, as will as the two bookstores (Laie and La Central) of the two arts centres.

Món Llibre has gradually established itself as a much-needed and awaited festival with a singular format that usually attracts over 12,000 people in the course of a weekend.

Món Llibre also promotes and innovates with its activities directed at children, all somehow linked to books or literature. It provides a framework for projects, shows, talks and actions that offer new ways of “reading” the world.
