The Hay Festival… in Mexico?

Next week I will be off to Zacatecas to attend around fifteen events at the Hay Festival’s Mexican spinoff. The program looks excellent, and I am looking forward to seeing Jon Lee Anderson, Antonio Skármeta, Steve Jones, Jeanette Winterson and especially the panel on Bolaño. I will, however, be giving the Bob Geldof concert a miss. Full report will follow in about a fortnight. It will be the furthest north in Mexico that I’ve been, and while I’m a bit apprehensive (elections and violence all over the country today, but the latter was more concentrated in the north, as usual), I’m excited to be seeing a beautiful colonial city and some (hopefully) fascinating talks.
