The latest Printout took place earlier this week. The evenings have now developed their own structure and routine. Steve and I have learned not to worry about advance ticket sales, we almost always fill the Book Club basement, however late people leave it to book; there’s usually a good mix of familiar faces and newcomers attracted by a particular magazine; and there’s the inevitable last-minute tech problems to do with the projector (this week my laptop died and the remote control didn’t work with the replacement so I spent the evening pressing keys). The speakers deliver their talks, there’s a quick Q&A Session, followed by some beers and talk.
The launch issue of Perdiz first appeared last Autumn, but what better for this dull, dark January than a magazine about happiness? This dual-language (Spanish-English) magazine is not only a great-looking publication but it overcomes any national differences to prove happiness is, as it says on the cover, contagious.
