The Summer Book Fair is a great chance to meet and talk with local San Miguel authors and to buy their books directly from them. Stop by on August Saturday 20 and mingle with your neighbors, listen to mini-author-readings, and enjoy a delicious coffee and snack.
In addition to local authors, the fair will also feature several San Miguel artisans who will be selling their jewelry, maps, cards, textiles and other items directly to the public.
To get there: Hotel Aldea is on Ancha San Antonio, close to where it meets Zacateros. Walk through the beautiful Hotel Aldea courtyard all the way to the back. You’ll see signs directing you upstairs to the Book Fair.
This event is organizated by San Miguel Literary Sala, which offers visibility, community, and inspiration to the writers and readers of San Miguel de Allende; to honor the long history of distinguished writers living and working here; to enrich the cultural life and educational opportunities for local residents in both Spanish and English; and to establish San Miguel de Allende as a leading destination for literary and cultural tourism commensurate with its status as a World Heritage Site.
They believe that reading and writing are essential, that great literature enriches our lives, feeds our souls, and facilitates greater understanding of ourselves and others.
