Pages and Petals in Adeje


“With freedom, books, flowers, and the moon, who could not be happy?” Oscar Wilde

This year’s Adeje Book Fair got off to a great start this morning, with a fun-filled visit by the children from local schools who visited the stalls, and were treated to a theatrical story-telling too.
The fair, which this year has added flower stalls to the offer, is in the Las Torres School of Music and Dance car park, and runs all day today and tomorrow. Books for all ages and tastes are on offer, many at reduced prices, and during the fair there will also be a number of special events, readings and signings by authors, performances by dance and music groups, poetry recitals, and lots more.
