CCLA Art & Lit Fest- Holguin Cuba




On August 29, 2009,
the Canada Cuba Literary Alliance

celebrated its Second Literary Festival in Holguín, parallel
to the one held early this month in Canada.
The cultural meeting took place under the auspices of the Villena-Botev Library Cultural Center and thanks to the ingenuity and organizing capacity of Joaquín Osorio.
This CCLA devoted friend helped orchestrate an afternoon
of luxury. A group of leading poets of the city joined the
CCLA delegation— Miriam, Wency, Adonay and Manuel—
to read poetry and to listen to the music of Eliezer Travieso,
the best guitarist in town.
