La Noche de las Librerías

If you happened to be in Buenos Aires this past Saturday, you would perhaps have come across one of the great literary events in the world.  It's Bookstore Night!  Several blocks of the Avenida Corrientes are closed to traffic.  Sofas and chairs are set up.  And people read.  They listen to lectures.  (Note the video screens.)  They participate in panel discussions.

How cool is that!
Daren, what do you think?
Could it happen here?
Decatur: There's A Festival For That!
