¡Bienvenidos a Spanish Lit Month 2014!
Spanish Lit Month 2014, a month-long celebration of Spanish language literature read in the original español or in translation in the language of your choice. Thanks to Stu of Winstonsdad's Blog for coming up with the idea for the event in the first place and for asking me to co-host it with him back in 2012 and now again in 2014. Thanks as well to all of you who have agreed to read and review a work for the festivities this year. By the way, the link above should include the names of almost everybody who's said they'll be participating; however, there's always room for more if anybody else would like to join us during the course of the month. Feel free to leave a comment here if I've missed you or if you'd like to make sure I know about any of your Spanish Lit Month posts. For now, I'm planning on running weekly links round-ups on Sundays throughout July. As far as what I'll be reading for the event, your guess is as good as mine! However, the closest things to a certainty at the moment are a) Guillermo Cabrera Infante's Tres tristes tigres [Three Trapped Tigers], one of our two group read choices for the end of the month alongside Gabriel García Márquez's Noticia de un secuestro [News of a Kidnapping], and b) a new César Aira book that was brought back from Chile for me just yesterday thanks to a very kind coworker. Anyway, hope to see you around during the event. ¡Saludos!/Cheers!
