Premio Princesa de Asturias TRIP!


Hi All!

How is your summer? I hope you are having a blast (and lots of time to read!).

I'm writing to let you know that this year, in October, we have an opportunity to participate in the event organized in Oviedo: the meeting with the laureate of Premio Princeso de Asturias 2018 with the book clubs from all over Spain.

However, this year is going to be a bit different. The laureate is Fred Vargas  (https://www.eldiario.es/cultura/libros/Fred-Vargas-Pricnesa-Asturias-Letras_0_774822818.html), but apparently she's a very introverted person and for that reason she's not going to meet her readers.
The organization decided to look for some other options and they proposed us to meet Alma Guillermoprieto, the laureate of Premio Princesa de Asturias en Comunicación y Humanidades (https://elpais.com/cultura/2018/05/03/actualidad/1525337593_713198.html).

Here you have an original note I have received from Oviedo:
"Dado el carácter introvertido y un poco especial de la Premio Letras de este año, Fred Vargas, resultó imposible que accediera al tradicional encuentro con lectores/as, pero desde la Fundación y en aras a no perder la posibilidad de reunir a los Clubs de Lectura, han pensado casi desde el minuto 0 en otro Plan, y es un encuentro con la Premio de Comunicación y Humanidades Alma Guillermoprieto que, realmente, es muy buena opción y creo que puede resultar muy interesante.
Los libros que sugerimos para trabajar en los clubes son: La Habana en un espejo o Desde el país de nunca jamás.
El encuentro se celebrará entre el 15 y 18 de octubre."

If you are interested in going to Oviedo (we don't know the exact day, it usually is Tuesday or Thursday, we know it will be between 15-18.10), you should let me know before August, 12th (deadline: 11.08 23:59). There might be a possibility to join us later, but I can't assure you any seats will be left.

Same as previous year: it's a one day trip. The bus is paid by Fundacion the Princesa de Asturias. We only have to pay our lunch.

I hope you'll find it interesting! Let me know what you think!

Best,
Slawka
