Sant Jordi 2021: our recommendations
published on 23.04.21
On April 23 is celebrated in Catalonia the Diada de Sant Jordi, in Aragón San Jorge, and the day of the book worldwide. Every year, the streets of Barcelona are filled with book and rose stalls, writers meet their readers and sign their works, there are concerts all over the city and activities for the little ones. Last year, we had to celebrate it at home due to confinement, which is why this 2021 festival takes on special importance. To celebrate that this year we can go out for a walk and visit the bookstores, we bring you our recommendations of books on management, tourism, finance and marketing, all of them available in our catalog and recommended especially for students.
