The award goes to Spanish writer, Juan Goytisolo Gay.
During the King’s toast he said “Convinced that the literature and books that support it are a powerful tool for the ambitious quixotic program,” he went on saying “we wanted to meet with you to share and encourage this ideal goal.”
Around 100 guests attended today’s lunch, they varied from booksellers, authors, authorities, academics, editors and teachers.
