Although it’s only summer, Instituto Cervantes is already getting ready for the rainy season as a deluge of books arrives on April 19 at the third edition of Día Internacional del Libro (International Book Day).
Instituto Cervantes celebrates Día del Libro or International Book Day, an event that aims to promote the love for reading and the written word. Regularly celebrated on the 23rd of April, World Book Day was inspired by a tradition from Barcelona, Spain that celebrates St. George’s Day, where men and women exchange a rose for the gift of a book.
Thanks to all those who visited last weekend’s Ateneo Celadon Young Entrepreneurs Show 2008. We have given away Moleskine Notebooks as well as introduced them to a lot of cool people. It is my first time to set-up a public display of Moleskine Notebooks and I have to say the different types look pretty slick next to each other. Here are some photos from the event:
Most common question asked about the Moleskine Notebooks: “Are these made from a mole’s skin?”
Weirdest question asked: “Why is there an ‘E’ in Moleskine? Isn’t it there is no ‘E’ when you spell ‘skin’?”
It was a good thing I wasn’t drinking at that moment.
What: Ateneo Celadon Young Entrepreneurs Show (YES!) 2008
When: January 19 and 20, 2008 from 10:00am – 9:00pm (Sat. and Sun.)
