The English Corner Goes Book Tasting
A very different activity. Only 12 spots available!! Secure your seat by paid registration before October 12th, 20:00. Instructions at the bottom. Please read description.
Book tasting (cata de libros) is a new type of social and cultural experience created by Eitan Felner, director of BookTasting and an Internations member, which offers an original way of meeting people and sharing the pleasure of reading, one book bite at a time.
During the ‘tasting’, each participant reads aloud a short story, a poem, a paragraph or a passage that they found funny, moving or intriguing about a pre-selected theme, while everybody enjoys a perfect pairing: delicious words, good wine, and enticing tapas (included in the price).
Very much in the IN spirit, we´ll join a book tasting on the topic of countries and cities around the world. There are two options.
1. Bring your own short literary text (no more than a page) about a country, region, city, village (your birthplace, your favourite tourist destination, wherever) you´d like to share. OR
2. Pick and read one of the literary bites provided onsite. So, unlike a book club, YOU DON´T HAVE TO READ, PREPARE OR BRING ANYTHING IN ADVANCE, unless you want to.
Although most book tastings are in Spanish, this one is in English. But you could bring a short passage in any other language, read it in that language and then read the English translation as well. This way, we’ll be able to enjoy the musicality of various languages and at the same time understand the wonderful texts that each person shares!
