My name in Japanese

May 5, 2010

This bookmark says “Patricio”, my name, in Japanese

I got it at this year’s Book Fair.

The Buenos Aires International Book Fair is held every April in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and is one of the top five book fairs in the world, oriented to the literary community as well as to the general public.

The fair is organized by the Fundación El Libro, a non-profit established by the Argentine Society of Writers (SADE). One of the most important cultural and editorial events in Latin America, the fair was first held in March 1975 and was for years known as the “Buenos Aires International Fair, from the Author to the Reader.”

Attracting 116 stands from seven countries in its first expo, the fair has drawn approximately 1,500 stands from 50 countries in recent years. Famous writers have visited the fair, including Isabel Allende, Jorge Luis Borges, Ray Bradbury, Paulo Coelho, José Saramago, Wilbur Smith and Tom Wolfe.
