It's that time of year again

For the stubborn who insist on continuing to read, smack downtown, from today through the 18th of October, it's time for the International Book Fair in the Zócalo. This year, the guests of honor are books from the United Kingdom and the state of Morelos (the latter known more for lawlessness than literacy in recent years). On Friday, October 16, at 4 pm, at the "Foro Multidisciplinario Gerardo Deniz" (in Spanish it sort of sounds like a place where people might go to get punished), I will be reading a passage from my book Las llaves de la ciudad and talking with Nadia Islas Navarro about being literate in Mexico City.
