Socrates on Futebol and Brazil, July 18 at London Literary Festival, July 1 to 18
I did not mean to start with an event on July 18, the last day of London Literary Festival and end with the beginning.
As things are heating up in the past few days at World Cup 2010 in South Africa, Socrates on Futebol and Brazil just felt perfect to put some perspective on recent intense discussions about players, styles, strategies, egos and coaches.
The Socrates appearance at the festival will be a team effort as program notes:
The Futebol and Brazil trio (July 18, 5 PM) is one of the many offerings of Brazilian Words itself one element of Festival Brazil (June 19-September 9).
In different spheres, Brazilian Words also invited Twins Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, the hottest comic book artists in Brazil, on July 5.
The same day at the same time (7 PM), Ana Maria Goncalves, Patricia Melo and Maria Valéria Rezende in A Woman's Eye on Brazil discuss their work and Brazilian life from a woman's perspective.
For all those of us poor souls who cannot spend 2 weeks in London taking the pulse of the Literary World, organizers launch the first ever Litweeter Festival via Twitter.
Here's the plan:
Litweeter Festival is co-curated by Nikesh Shukla and Southbank Centre, there will be two tweet ups during the festival, on Wednesday 7th July and Sunday 18th July."
London Literary Festival opens on July 1 at Southbank Centre and runs until July 18.
