Paco Goyanes


Paco Goyanes (Zaragoza). Graduate in Philosophy and Arts, in 1983 he founded Librerías Cálamo de Zaragoza (Cálamo Bookshops, Zaragoza), of which he is the director. His bookselling project is accompanied by an intense cultural activity, highlighted by the Cálamo Prizes (2007).  

Cálamo’s contribution has been awarded numerous prizes, amongst which the Cultural Bookseller Award (Ministerio de Educación, Cultura y Deporte, Gobierno de España) and the Boizareu Ginesta Prize (Federación de Gremios de Editores de España, 2016) stand out.

In 2012 he was selected as one of the fifty most influential professionals of the publishing industry in Spain and Latin America in a survey carried out by El Libro Foundation in Buenos Aires.

He has given lectures, taught different courses and organized workshops on bookselling training in many countries (Guatemala, México, Costa Rica, Argentina, Guinea Ecuatorial, etc.), as well as participating in the Guadalajara and Frankfurt bookfairs and in the American editions of the Hay Festival.

In 2022 he directed the Barbitania Festival in Barbastro (Huesca), a pre-Frankfurt gathering of Spanish and Latin American independent bookshops and publishers, with the goal of establishing strong links with Germany.
