Festival de la Palabra 2013: Literary Festival Spans San Juan and New York


The 2013 Festival de la Palabra [Festival of the Word] opens today at the Puerto Rico Museum of Art. In San Juan, the festival runs from October 10 to 13 and in New York, from October 16 to 19. The festival draws together acclaimed writers and publishers from Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain, as well as avid readers of literature written in Spanish. As Puerto Rican writer and executive director of the festival Mayra Santos-Febres has described, the festival is a “tertulia”—a social gathering/discussion—about literature and larger, universal subjects, such as culture, migration, and other critical issues.

Festival de la Palabra is a global gathering of writers and readers who celebrate the word in its many manifestations. Organized by the Salón Literario Libroamérica, the Festival of the Word is celebrating its 4th edition in Puerto Rico and its 3rd in New York, which makes it a one of a kind festival, serving a community in more than one geographic location. For the second consecutive year the Festival will take place at the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico, this time, from 10 to 13 October. It will have activities for all audiences, with some of the most important literary exponents of the local and international arenas.

  1. I do consider all of the ideas you’ve offered to your post.
    They’re really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for starters.
    May you please extend them a bit from next time?
    Thanks for the post.
