Let us know the highlights for you so far and we’ll share them with the world.

This week we’re participating in FIL, the Feria Internacional del Libro de Guadalajara. Are you? If so, tell us what have been the highlights of the fair for you? Was it a new book? An author who left a strong impression? A publisher? A trend. Let us know.

For us, the strongest image of the first day has to be watching FIL director Nubia Edith MacĂ­as Navarro parading a large mariachi band through the stands in the afternoon on Monday. As noted by Joe Schick, director of digital media services and business development for Baker & Taylor, “The mariachis are fun, but they do get LOUD…”

And if you have a story that we should be reporting, send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you.
