What you'll do

Are you looking for a unique experience during your visit to Madrid beyond museums, paella or flamenco? Try a totally different experience: a tasting of books about love. How do you taste books? Very simple: as in a wine tasting you sample wines you don't know, in a book tasting you discover literary texts you never tasted before: Each participant reads aloud a short story, a poem or a paragraph from a novel on a specific topic - in this case on ‘love’ - and everyone enjoys a perfect pairing: good cava wine, tasty tapas and delicious words. I'll bring a selection of texts to read from well-known authors: Flaubert, Cortázar, Kundera, etc., and other lesser-known authors that you may discover. And if you wish, you can also bring a short text (no more than 1 page!) on the theme of love that you want to read to others. An ideal experience for couples, but also recommended for travelers who want to return home with a selection of the best literature on love to share with their partner or to seduce anyone with delicious words. At the end of the ‘tasting’, I will give you recommendations to continue your adventures in Madrid.

Reading is my greatest passion. So, a few years ago I began organizing ‘book tastings’, an activity I invented to share the joy of reading in an original, fun and enriching way. Since then, I’ve organized dozens of book tastings on various topics, with great public and media reception (http://www.booktasting.com/medios/ ). One of the most popular ‘tastings’ has always been that about love, a theme that touches us all and has inspired so many authors. This experience will take place in a hidden garden in the quaint neighborhood where I’ve been living for 15 years. Let me share it with you.

What's included

Food
Cheese and fruits hors d'oeuvre
Drinks
Two glasses of cava wine Option of non-alcoholic beverage
Equipment
Basket with literary texts for you to read aloud

Where you'll be

We will meet at Plaza Mayor, and after a short stroll along the winding the streets of medieval Madrid, we will enter a hidden garden in one of the most charming squares of the city. In this haven of peace, as we contemplate the rooftops and church towers of the oldest neighborhood of Madrid, we will read a potpourri of exquisite literary morsels about love, paired with nice cava wine and delicious hors d'oeuvre.
