Author Andrea Amosson to Participate in International Book Fair Hosted in Her Native Chile
March 23, 2016 (Antofagasta, Chile) – Andrea Amosson announced today that she will be traveling to her birthplace of Antofagasta, Chile to participate as a guest author at the sixth annual International Book Fair Zicosur (FILZIC). The International Book Fair in Antofagasta is an important multicultural event in northern Chile and one of the most significant regional fairs in Latin America. The event will take place from April 26 through May 8, 2016.
Andrea Amosson’s presentation will be on Friday, April 29, at 5PM. She will be discussing her book Cuentos Encaderados, a collection of short stories that feature strong women and the strength they have within them to handle any challenging situation that comes their way. Each story is about a different woman, in a different circumstance. The women in these stories each have varying backgrounds, cultures, and histories. Their stories are empowering, relatable, and thought-provoking. Cuentos Encaderados has been translated into an English version titled Told from the Hips.
Amosson commented, “So much of my identity as an author is tied to being Chilean. I’m incredibly excited to visit and discuss my book with Latin American readers at one of the biggest cultural events in Chile.”
FILZIC will be held from April 26 to May 8, 2016. Authors from all over Latin America are set to participate in the event, including Jorge Baradit, Juan Villoro, Mary Olivia Monckeberg, Mario Valdivia, Pablo Simonetti, Rafael Gumucio, Raul Sohr, and Sergio Rojas.
The festival will be located at Calle Simón Bolívar 255, 1243199 Antofagasta, Chile. For more information visit http://www.filzic.cl/wp/
