The Basque literature will be present once again at the FIL, Feria Internacional de Libro of Guadalajara (Mexico), the most important fair and literary event in Latin America. On one hand, the Basque editors will bring the Basque literature to the fair, in their own stand.  The Etxepare Basque Institute will also be working in that space, where several meetings with international editors and agents have already been scheduled. Mari Jose Olaziregi, director for the Promotion and Dissemination of the Institute will  meet, among others,  representatives of the Government of Jalisco.

On another, "Days of Nevada" by Bernardo Atxaga, the literary work awarded with the latter Euskadi Prize in Literature, will be one of the literary news  this year. The author himself will travel to Guadalajara to present his novel, on December 2. It will not be the only event to be attended by the author in Mexico: the journey, organized by the Etxepare Basque Institute, includes a wide activity program.  On December 1, the Basque writer will participate in the FIL event El Placer de la Lectura (The Pleasure of Reading),  together with the authors José Manuel Sánchez Ron, Luis Goytisolo, Eduardo Lago and Rodrigo Fresán. In another  program also designed by the fair, Atxaga will also visit two schools of Jalisco, where he will offer two lectures to the students.

On December 3, the International Day of Euskera, Atxaga and Olaziregi will move to Mexico City, where the writer will give a lecture-talk in the emblematic  Palacio de Bellas Artes, along with the journalist Javier Aranda. This special event will be titled Conversación con Bernardo Atxaga  (Conversation with Bernardo Atxaga) . The tour will end  on December 4  with a visit to the Universidad Autónoma Nacional de México and the  Universidad Iberoamericana Ciudad de México, where Bernardo Atxaga will meet the teachers and the students and will discuss about literature and about his own work.
