“Literary Dates” Triumph with Youth

On the occasion of International Children's Book Day, this past April 2, five schools in the Barcelona province met in Hospitalet to take part in the activity "First Literary Dates", along the lines of the well-known television programme. Almost 200 students from the schools Santa Eulàlia and Bellvitge from Hospitalet; Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, from Sant Adrià; and Costa i Llobera and Virolai from Barcelona met in the Espai Jove Ca n'Arús to discuss reading while they ate. The project was selected to represent Barcelona in the first European digital platform for the development of youth audiences, focused on literary organisations, in the framework of the Engage! project.
