TiBE 台北國際書展 2/12-2/17, 2019


28 January 2018 /
Organized by the Brazil Book Chamber (Câmara Brasileira do Livro), the Brazil booth showcases the winning titles of the 2017 Jabuti Awards (Prêmio Jabuti). Jabuti was created in 1958 and is Brazil’s most traditional and celebrated book award. The most important differential in relation to other literature awards is its reach: besides appreciating writers, the award highlights the work quality of several areas related to creation and production of a book.

Publishing houses of several segments and independent writers apply annually their books hoping for the desired statuette and the recognition it provides. Winning a Jabuti is a desire by all of those who consider a book as an ideal of life. It is a distinction that gives to its winner much more than a financial reward. Winning a Jabuti represents to the book the ballast of the Brazilian intellectual community, it means to be admitted to a group of remarkable writers that are part of national literature.
