Mexico City

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

I’ve been eyeing this blog with guilt the past few months. It’s easy to come up with minor topics, but when I’ve let things slide this long, it feels like I should offer an exceptional topic as I get back into the habit of posting.

So here it is: I have been invited to participate in the 25th Festival de México en el Centro Histórico, in Mexico City. This is an annual arts festival involving music, performance, film, other visual arts, and literature. This year the literature track is focused on science fiction, which is where I come in.

I have never been to Mexico City before, so I am looking forward to this. I’m scheduled to give a talk on Tuesday, March 17, and participate in a round table discussion on Thursday, March 19. I will have some illustrious company, so it should be interesting.

Here is the link to the literature section of the festival website: Google can provide reasonable translations.

My contacts at the festival have been wonderfully helpful and gracious in preparing for this trip, and my thanks go out to them.
