Seashore, Chapadmalal, Buenos Aires, Argentina in August 2023 – by Joaquín Conde

“In August 2023, I participated as an editor in the 2nd “Encuentro Provincial de Bibliotecas Populares” in Chapadmalal, which brings together librarians, independent publishers, and officials from the province’s cultural sector. The event took place in one of the immense hotels of the Chapadmalal Tourist Unit, built during Perón’s first presidency for the use of working-class families, who had just obtained the right to paid vacations in 1945. The day before the event, it was somewhat cloudy with hardly any wind. I took my recorder and went straight down to the beach, next to the cliffs.”
