Kolibrí Festivaali 2023 will host its traditional Children’s Book Fair, and it’s going to be full of surprises!

Our Children’s Book Fair is one of our most traditional events and it offers a unique opportunity to take home second-hand children's books in Spanish and Portuguese. And as every year, we embrace children's literature with a wide selection of titles from publishers throughout Ibero-America.

This year, the Book Fair will focus on the work of Alfredo Soderguit, Guest of Honor of Kolibrí Festivaali 2023. The Uruguayan writer, illustrator, and filmmaker, author of Los Carpinchos (Ediciones Ekaré, 2020), will sign books at our fair, so don't miss it!

You’ll also find beautiful illustrations of artists who participated in other editions of the Festival: Isidro Ferrer, Yara Kono, Paloma Valdivia and Juan Palomino.
