Ediciones Holguín, with more than 500 books published, is an open door for the promotion of culture in this eastern Cuban city, with more than 300 thousand inhabitants.
Poetry, history, story and essay are part of the catalog of the publishing house, founded more than 30 years ago as part of a program promoted by the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.

The volumes printed by the publisher, recognized with several awards, including the National Critic, have brought young people closer to the work of Cuban and foreign writers.

Lourdes Gonzalez, director of the publishing house, said that translations of works by foreign writers are one of the distinguishing features of Ediciones Holguín nationwide.

She said that Hans Christian Andersen, Germán Melville and Evgueni Evstuchenco are some examples of writes promoted.

Conferences, poetry readings and exchange visits to schools, are also among the activities promoted by the Holguin publisher, one of the first founded in Cuba to expand cultural horizons on the island.

Novels, adventures, chronicles of historical events, children's stories, are a journey through imagination and traditions in the city of Holguín, more than 700 kilometers east of Havana. / ACN
