The Night of the Books in Madrid
Outdoor reading room
One of the novelties of this year is the Outdoor reading room, in the Plaza de Sánchez Bustillo (in front of the Reina Sofia Museum). The square becomes a space to sit and read, buy books, listen to stories and much more. For example, do not miss the children's stories planned for 6.30 pm.
Natal House Lope de Vega
Another magnificent plan for this day is to visit the Lope de Vega Birthplace (Cervantes Street, 11), where they will be offered, hourly and for a maximum of 10 people, dramatized visits with Alberto Gómez, Luna Paredes and Paco Huertas. Learn about the life and work of the writer in a unique enclave.
Birthplace of Cervantes
Families can also enjoy Storyteller "Tell me what I tell you" in the Birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes of Alcalá de Henares. It will narrate some chapters of Don Quixote full of adventures, heroes, villains, knights and squires. For children of six years.
In addition, until April 30 there is an exhibition that includes a selection of drawings made by Spanish and Latin American artists that served to illustrate the Quixote published in 2001.
But those are not the only plans. Click on the different places marked in the following interactive map and find out about all the activities planned for the whole family. Do you want more? There are also organized meetings for seniors with a myriad of topics; you will find them all in this link of the Night of the Books of Madrid.
