Yesterday I went to PordenoneLegge, in the city of Pordenone, where every year takes place a book festival based on the idea of meeting the authors.
To take part in those meetings you have to book your space, and I took advantage of the time in the line to make a small sketch of the church of Saint George.
The book was from a North Korean author that fled from the country and now in this book describes her life. It sounds really interesting, I’m looking forward to read it.
Also connected to the event there are several art exhibitions and we saw a very interesting one on French photography during the XXI century.
