In today’s session, lectures, recitals and presentations have been delivered. At noon, there was a meeting with the writer Edgar Allan Garcia, from Ecuador, to the culture of which the ‘Fire Festival’, as this event is also known, is dedicated this year.

The event’s program includes activities for the community. Thus, the poets and researchers will leave the conference halls and offer recitals at factories and talk to readers in the community.

Tomorrow, several books will be presented, including the novel Ancient Wood, by Margarita Sanchez-Gallinal, the presentation of which will be made by Cuban intellectual Waldo Leyva, winner of the International Award, Casa del Caribe.

The Meeting of Poets from the Caribbean and the World will conclude on Saturday, July 8th, with a call to hold a new edition of the colloquium in 2017, aimed at building bridges of words among writers from the region.
