FLIP’ing out over books

FLIP, or Festa Literária Internacional de Parati is a yearly literary festival held in the charming old seaside city of Parati (sometimes spelled Paraty), in Rio de Janeiro (close to the border of São Paulo). It has attracted many world-famous authors since it began in late 2003. The Festival comes complete with music shows, interviews, writer’s workshops and a main attraction, which pays homage to a different notable Brazilian writer each year.

This year, FLIP will be held July 2nd through the 6th, 2008.

I have long wanted to go there, not only for my love of literature but to experience the colonial beauty of Parati’s cobblestone streets and old churches. Soon!
