Library Reading: Wandering in Andalusia: The Soul of Southern Spain

Saturday, August 5th, 2017 || 11am Novato Public Library || Novato 1720 Novato Blvd, Novato CA 94947 In many ways, Andalusia, situated as it is, at the southern boundary of the Iberian Peninsula, is a crossroads, a caravansary where settlers from northern Europe, Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East have left their mark. Our writers went from Córdoba to Málaga, from Granada and its Alhambra to Cadíz to bring back stories of cities, rivers, coasts, plains, food, spirit and passion. All embarked upon new roads of discovery, and all were well rewarded in their investigations. These, after all, are the landscapes that inspired Cervantes, Lorca, Machado,...

From Wanderland Writers Workshops: Wandering in Andalusia:  Seville and The Alhambra—March 11-March 18, 2016 “Near the walls of Seville/ At my friend’s house, Lillas Pastia/ I will dance the Séguedille/ And drink Manzanilla.” From Carmen, by Georges Bizet. Well-known writers and instructors Linda Watanabe McFerrin and Joanna Biggar are off on another adventure and invite you to join them in Andalusia. In this legendary region of Southern Spain many worlds meet: classical (Hercules was the supposed founder of Seville) and medieval; Jewish, Christian and Moorish; colonial, imperial, and modern.
