Next Bar Night & Book Fair News

Thanks to all who came out for the book swap/merienda last Sunday!  It was a good time with no shortage of books to go around so we will definitely do it again. And a big, big thanks to all those who responded to my desperate pleas for housing and computer help! Gracias a ustedes I am now writing to you from my adorable new apartment in Chacarita on my new MacBook and have moved on to plotting the acquisition of a kitten.

Writers in BA Bar Night
Friday, April 3rd

Pry yourself away from your typewriter, emerge from your hovel, and come out and meet other writers to discuss conspiratorial plots to take over the city. Friends/companions welcome. Spread the word!

35th International Buenos Aires Book Fair
La Feria Internacional del Libro Buenos Aires is coming up, April 23rd-May 11th. If you're not familiar with it, it's a giant exposition of books, authors, readings, workshops, and a variety of random and informative booths from Mormons to anarchists ...

This year there will be talks and readings by American authors Junot Diaz (Drown, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao) and Annie Proulx (Brokeback Mountain, The Shipping News). There will also be Writers in BA members participating at various levels: Maria Christina Azcona will be signing her book, A Guide to Find Peace; the Thursdays@Three writers' group will be publishing a compilation, giving readings, and leading workshops on screenwriting and running a writers' group. If anybody else has book fair related news, please let me know this week and I will but together a little Writers in BA guide to the Book Fair with schedule. Send to writersinba@gmail.com.
