In celebration of World Book Day on April 23, the Embassy of Mexico in Belize and the Belize National Library Service and Information System present ‘21 para 21” (21 for 21) Collection, a conversation and reading from the books of classic Mexican authors.

Every April 23rd, World Book Day is celebrated worldwide on April 23, as it was established in 1996 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

On Friday, April 22, the Belize National Library Service and Information System and the Embassy of Mexico in Belize, through the Mexican Cultural Institute of Belize, are organizing a conversation and reading at Belize National Library Service’s headquarters in Belize City.

The Mexico Embassy said that presenters will read from some of the books that are part of the “21 para el 21” collection, published by the “Fondo de Cultura Económica”

The collection was recently donated to the Nelize National Library Service.

On hand to converse with the audience and read parts of the books will be the Mexican writer and philosopher, Óscar de la Borbolla, who has authored novels, short stories, essays, and poetry.

His books include Las vocales malditas and Filosofía para inconformes.

De la Borbolla has been a professor of Ontology at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, Mexico’s National University.

The Mexico Embassy said the ‘21 para el 21’ collection “was published to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the fall of the city of Tenochtitlan and the 200th anniversary of the Consummation of the Independence of Mexico, which will be fulfilled in 2021.”

Some of the books in the collection are: Los de abajo, by Mariano Azuela; Tiempo de ladrones, by Emilio Carballido; La sombra del caudillo, by Martín Luis Guzmán; Apocalipstick, by Carlos Monsiváis; and El laberinto de la soledad, by Octavio Paz.
