‘Books Come to Life’ at the Malta Book Festival 2019

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The popular comedy duo Danusan and the National Book Council have teamed up once again to present a show aimed at celebrating books and reading.

The one hour and thirty minute shows ‘Il-Kotba Jieħdu l-Ħajja’ (Books Come to Life) are perfect for families with children.

Danusan will be showing the importance of reading in their own hilarious way and will be staging performances inspired by the works that will have just been awarded the 2019 Terramaxka Prize for children. These will be announced during the Malta Book Festival’s opening ceremony on the 5th November.

‘Il-Kotba Jieħdu l-Ħajja’ will be held at Republic Hall, MCC. The tickets for the three shows (Friday 8 November at 8.00 pm, Saturday 9th November at 7pm and Sunday 10th November at 3.00 pm) are now available for sale on the MCC’s website and online. The starting price is €5.00.

With the purchase of a ticket for the Danusan show and upon presentation of the ticket during the show, you can get a €3.00 book voucher to be spent at any outlet exhibiting at the Malta Book Festival 2019.

You may purchase your ticket here or visit the NBC Facebook page and the MBF event page for more information.
