Reading and social activities for High School

Room for the involvement of high school students in the 13th edition of Taobuk SeeSicily, from 15 to 19 June, which will reserve plenty of space for the participation of young people in social activities and numerous reading projects.

Being present at Taobuk is, every year, an opportunity to live an educational experience dedicated to students, called upon to participate not only as an audience but as an active part of the Festival. This year, students will be able to choose from a variety of proposals designed exclusively for them, including reading projects, literary contests, and evideo-reviews on social platforms.
