Guanajuato Book Fair Fights the Rain

A canvas cover protected the booksellers and their wares in Pastitos the past three weeks. At 6pm during the first two weeks, a live program was presented every night. Believe me, the spoken word comes alive when readers who seem like actors present it. One program was a tribute to writers who died during the year, including Miguel Delibes of Spain. After the program I found a used copy of his book Los Santos Inocentes. Delibes was new to me and now I am a fan. I hope to add at least one photo to this post but not tonight. Another hope: that the festival will repeat next year in a sunnier season.
