Bangkok was designated World Book Capital 2013 by Unesco. To celebrate the occasion, Chulalongkorn University's Faculty of Arts is hosting a series of activities to promote Spanish- and Portuguese-language literary works. 

Held in collaboration with embassies of Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries, namely Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, and Spain, the "Literature in Spanish and Portuguese: Experience and explore the Luso-Hispanic world" festival will take place from Wednesday to Aug 8 (except Aug 4).

The programme will include a vote to determine the favourite words of the two languages, a literary translation contest, and afternoon talks on many interesting topics on Aug 2, Aug 5 and Aug 7-8.
