Décrivez les principales caractéristiques de la politique/mesure: 

The National Reading and Writing Policy was established by Law No. 13,696/2018. It is a permanent strategy to promote books, reading, writing, literature, and publicly accessible libraries in Brazil. The objectives are: to increase access to books and reading; promote, value, and disseminate Brazilian literature and the circulation of authors and works, with an emphasis on bibliodiversity; value national authors; and to stimulate the formation of authors and readers, encouraging the quality, diversity, and circulation of literary works. Among the policy actions, there is an awarding (in cash) for authors and literary works selected through public calls. It also promotes literary events through the support of literary fairs, book biennials, journeys, and literary soirees, among other actions. Within the scope of the Policy, a permanent group of internationalization of Brazilian literature was also created in 2018, with the participation of representatives of public and private institutions committed to supporting the presence of Brazilian literary production abroad. It also enables the participation of national authors in debates and discussions regarding the schedule of international fairs.

Quels sont les résultats atteints jusqu’à présent grâce à la mise en œuvre de la politique/mesure ?: 
In 2018, four public calls were launched aiming: 1) the creation of digital libraries (see the chapter on Digital Environment); 2) to support to literary fairs; and 3) to encourage the publication of original works on relevant themes in the history of Brazil. The 2018 Literary Fairs Public Notice contributed to strengthen and enhance the creative chain of books in the country, as well as to disseminate the Brazilian literature, promoting the circulation of literary works. It was possible to hold 17 events, including fairs, journeys, biennials, and other literary actions in the country. Also, in 2018, two public notices awarded original works in Portuguese that freely addressed the themes "Bicentennial of the Independence of Brazil" and "Modern Art Week of 1922". Fifty works (25 for each theme) with US$ 10,946.30 each. These awards contributed to promote, encourage and disseminate literary productions on important themes in the history of Brazil. The Permanent Working Group on the Internationalization of Brazilian Literature supported the participation of 18 Brazilian writers in the main international literary fairs.
