On an interview with Notimex, Morcillo Lopez informed the participation from 143 individuals between editors, sellers and producers of several texts. The exposers are all related to the reading industry in Mexico and other countries, he said.
Between the participants the FILEY hope to count with the presence of the Comisión Nacional de Libros de Texto Gratuitos (Conaliteg) from the federal government, which will release several texts that have been edited in different indigenous dialects.
There are also around 30 exposers from informative media like magazines, newspapers, etc.
The FILEY is taking place at the Centro de Convenciones Siglo XXI, specifically at the Chichen Itza hall; at the hall there is a small space dedicated to the yucatecan writer, Juan Garcia Ponce, with several shops and activities.
On this edition, the guest of honor will be the Distrito Federal, as a result, the Universidad Autonoma de Mexico (UNAM) and the Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (Conaculta) will send their proper representatives.
