The province of Las Palmas has, today, an important representation that allows it to become part of the circuit of festivals of this type that, spread throughout the Spanish geography, is giving such good results.

Without reaching the German, French or Nordic genre, the black genre currently has a huge production in Spain that is reflected in its consumption. The Canary Islands is not alien to this phenomenon, so LPA Confidencial wants to be a pioneer festival in witnessing the emergence of this genre but, especially, of the authors – consolidated and new, local, national and international -, to contribute to its talent is within the reach of the still masculinized publishing market and orchestrate a festival that revolves around inclusion and diversity in all the themes that are discussed.
