4 brazilian book chamber The Brazilian Book Chamber (Câmara Brasileira do Livro - CBL) brings together editors, booksellers, distributors and door-to-door sales companies since With more than 650 members, the entity s main goal is creating a better country through the promotion of books and reading. Brazil has for the second time been named (the first time was in 1994) as the Guest of Honor at the Frankfurt Book Fair, the largest and most important event of its kind in the world. Brazilian participation in the event is organized by the Ministries of Culture and Foreign Relations, the National Library Foundation (Fundação Biblioteca Nacional FBN), the National Arts Foundation (Fundação Nacional de Artes - Funarte) and the Brazilian Book Chamber (commonly known as CBL).

More than 70 Brazilian authors will participate, with a rich program of lectures and discussions on the themes of their works in addition to readings. Plus, a vast cultural and gastronomic schedule will showcase the diversity of our country and the Brazilian way of life. Brazil s recognition in Frankfurt is of immense importance for the country s editorial production, which will be the focus of the worldwide market. There are numerous opportunities for business growth and wide exposure in the international media. The Brazilian Publishers project, a partnership between the CBL and the Brazilian Trade and Investment Promotion Agency (Agência Brasileira de Promoção de Exportações e Investimentos Apex-Brasil), plays an important role in this effort. It works so that exporting of books and sales of foreign language rights gradually leads to a strengthening of the publishing market. Another important showcase for Brazilian editorial production is the São Paulo International Book Biennial. The CBL promotes this event, which was attended by more than 750,000 people during its last edition, in The 23rd São Paulo International Book Biennial will take place August 21-31, The CBL also offers the Book School program (Escola do Livro), which provides continuing education for publishing professionals seeking to improve their knowledge.

7 Brazil, the country of diversity and bibliodiversity The tribute to Brazil at this Frankfurt Book Fair is an opportunity to delve into the rich cultural universe of the country. So, anyone who wants to learn about the best in Brazilian editorial production should take a look not only at books published by major market players. In Brazil there are numerous publishers that deserve attention due to the quality and robustness of their catalogs, built on bases of knowledge that the industry s major players cannot emulate. Brazil boasts the largest association of independent publishers in the world, LIBRE the Brazilian League of Editors (Liga Brasileira de Editores). It is composed of 117 companies that exchange information and knowledge daily through their own network, doing business in a collaborative manner. Some of the country s best publishing imprints can be found among these publishers. In some fields, only they publish the best of literature and essays in the country, for both adults and children. There are publishers whose titles are references throughout the country, in fields like education, popular culture, Afro-Brazilian culture, Brazilian history, sociology, Marxism, literature, literary criticism, sociology, etc.. As the president of this association, I cannot just mention one without giving due credit to the rest. But I invite the reader to to check out Brazilian independent production in particular. I am sure a closer look at these companies will reveal one of the finest features of current Brazilian society: its cultural, political, religious, literary, and intellectual diversity

Ilberon sees his eyes being stolen by the crafty eagle Canderina. To have them back, he looks for the support of witch Querencia. On a mix of medieval and contemporary symbols, the misleading witch tries to delude our wise long-bearded protagonist, until the day he decides to go for his eyes by himself. On the way to the Mirante Focal hill, he gets cursed by the spell of Querencia, who turns his body into a wild cat, but cannot change his sagacity and the look of his eyes. It is a battle of giants, where the triumph lies on one s wisdom and generosity

Otaviano Alves de Lima, º andar São Paulo SP Brazil Rights Department Ms. Sintia Mattar Children and Young Adults The Target Author: Ilan Brenman Format: 22.5 x 27.5 cm - 32 Pages ISBN: Thorny Brushwood of the Deep Jungle Author: Ricardo Azevedo Format: 17 x 24 cm Pages ISBN: In a small Polish town, there was an old teacher who helped people by telling stories. He was always able to find the right story for the right person at the right time. One day, a student asked him how he did it and he replied by telling another story: there was a young boy who loved archery. One day, he came across more than 100 targets, each with an arrow right in the center. Who would be capable of such a feat? A 10 year old boy solved the mystery: First I shot the arrows and then paint the targets around it. So, the old master explained to his students that he did just as the boy: he listened to people s problems and then painted a story around their difficulties. In the 16th century, a 15-year-old boy finds himself abandoned after the death of his mother, who was persecuted on false charges of witchcraft. He is fated to join the Portuguese overseas fleet, setting off on a risky voyage to the New World. His ship is wrecked, however, and the boy faces months of solitary survival in the unknown and exotic lands of Brazil in its early historical period. Encountering settlers, he witnesses the curious relationship between catechized natives and the Portuguese. Amidst passions, encounters, dangers and discoveries, the youngster is exposed to the conflict between established truths and the unrest of a vibrant and questioning life. The Athenaeum Author: Raul Pompeia Script and artwork: Marcello Quintanilha Format: 19 x 26 cm - 96 Pages ISBN: Look There! Author: José Paulo Paes Illustrations: Rubens Matuck 17.5 x 30.5 cm - 16 Pages ISBN: At the age of 11, Sérgio must leave behind his toys, the comfort of his home and his caring parents to enter a new phase: boarding school. He is enrolled in the prestigious Athenaeum commanded by an also illustrious director: Aristarco. At first dazzled by the aura of excellence that hovers over the school, Sergio finds himself alone in a completely foreign world. Behind an acclaimed modern education that attracts the children of the elite to the great school of its time, we discover a tyrannical system, driven by the greedy excesses of the director. Keeping the original text of Raul Pompeia, Marcello Quintanilha creates a masterpiece in comic book form. The animals of the Brazilian fauna are the protagonists of this delicate masterpiece by José Paulo Paes and Rubens Matuck. It consists of eight poems accompanied by beautiful watercolors, each one dedicated to a different creature: the ant, the macaw, the sloth, the alligator, the hummingbird, the anteater and the agouti. Through short and amusing verses, the book stimulates children s sensibility to the expressiveness of language. In the Dark Night Lays a Tree of Wonders!

They are stories about life that spread radiance and magic anytime, anywhere, and yet are at risk of being lost forever. But before they disappear completely in the dark night, Ricardo Azevedo, a researcher of Brazilian folklore and an exceptional storyteller, chose some of the most delightful tales and wrote them down the way everyone likes to hear them: from parent to child. Alex is unhappy with his new life in a big city apartment. He would rather go back to the countryside, where he could play in the street, his parents had time for him and no one called him a hick. Back in his town, he had no problems at school and did not have to put up with obnoxious girls like Beth. She could just leave him alone, especially now that he was being punished for something he didn t do... If someone would just let him explain himself he would have much to say. Not knowing how to deal with so many changes, Alex barely notices the transformations occurring inside of him. But conflicts do not prevent him from experiencing one of the best discoveries in life

Metaphors for human behaviors, the fable, from Aesop to La Fontaine and passed on by Phaedrus through a sea of anonymous people, has one foot rooted in the magical and another in moral formation.
