In Samaipateña land

In this new version, the Meeting will extend outside of Santa Cruz de la Sierra. Director Sarita Mansilla wanted to bring these specialized courses to teachers and students who, for some reason, cannot get to enjoy the Book Fair. That is why the magic of the FIL will be brought to their homes. This Sunday 5, a delegation will travel to Samaipatawhere the largest carved stone in the world is found: El Fuerte, declared Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 1998.

In this mystical place, on Monday the 6th, a learning session will be held called The Power of Reading, from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Fanuel Hanán Díaz and Manuel Peña will reach the heart of the capital of the Florida province to enter the Juan de la Cruz school, where they will give the workshops Current currents of children’s literature, new themes and formats (Peña) and Magic tricks for readers (Diaz). They will be valuable hours to promote reading in that area and a “unique” opportunity for those who participate in these courses. The classrooms are located next to the Plaza 15 de Diciembre.

The next day, Tuesday 7, there will be more to enjoy. Magic tricks for readers (Díaz) will be taught at the Enrique Finot Teacher Training School and, in the afternoon, the book La ronda de la vida (a story for children), by the Bolivian Edmundo Torrejón, will be presented at 6:00 p.m. . The Peruvian Rosario Torres will launch an Anthology of Poetics for Children and Youth, at 7:00 p.m.. Both appointments will take place in the Gabriel René Moreno room of the Book Fair, in Fexpocruz.
