This book tasting is in English to enable all expats living in Madrid that may not be yet fluent in Spanish to come and taste books with us. And to celebrate the multicultural nature of living in Madrid, the theme of this book tasting is countries and cities around the world. You may bring any 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.
“Cities, like dreams, are made of desires and fears”
But don’t worry, if you are unable to bring any text at all; BookTasting brings a basket full of literary bites about cities around the world that any of you can pick and read aloud to the other participants. So, unlike a book club, you don´t have to read, prepare or bring anything in advance, unless you want to do so.
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! And of course, Spaniards that speak English fluently are also welcome! In that case, you may want to bring a short text – a short story, a poem or a passage of a novel – about the specific region you are from (Galicia, Catalunya, Andalucía, etc).
