Books and lovers unite

It is that time of the year again when people flood the streets,
exchanging books and roses with their loved ones. April 23 is Sant
Jordi, the most Catalan of celebrations, free from politics and debate
and full of rose petals and brand new book releases.

the throngs of book buyers browsing through the book stands which line
the sidewalks and squares throughout every city, town and village. But
Barcelona is also offering a variety of activities to complement the
literary and floral festival. (Full story in printed edition).
