In 2021, reading spaces have been of the utmost importance for people and it has been evidenced by the great reception of independent bookstores. The Luces Awards recognize this work and here you can learn more about the nominees.

In San Isidro, we have the bookstore Living Book, which went viral due to an incident that occurred in October last year. “More than a business idea, behind an independent bookstore there is a project of construction, conversation and debate,” Guillermo Rivas, manager of the Book Vivant bookstore, told El Comercio.

In the same district of Miraflores there is also the independent bookstore On, which has a wide catalog of Peruvian and international books that can be delivered to the door of your house.
