HMSsOn the afternoon of May 31, 2013, Her Majesty Queen Sofia of Spain arrived at the Parque del Retiro in Madrid to inaugurate the 72nd Edition of the Ferio del Libro de Madrid.

Established in 1933 the Ferio del Libro de Madrid brings together hundreds of international publishers, authors, booksellers, and people to this outdoor festitvus of books!  There are also exhibition stands/booths, lectures as well as book signings by well-known authors.  How fun!  The Ferio del Libro de Madrid ends on June 16, 2013.  Admission is free.  Oh, and there is food as well.   🙂
