Liniers in conversation with Mariana H

Hay Festivalito
Read more

The Argentinean cartoonist Liniers has become one of the best-known practitioners of the genre on the international scene, attracting comparisons with the impact made in their day by figures such as Quino and Fontanarrosa. His famous comic strip Macanudo, with its unique and dreamlike fantasy elements, is read around the world. He also specializes in giving curious portraits of everyday reality, through characters such as Enriqueta, the girl who loves to read; the adorable monster Olga; and the Mysterious Man in Black. Liniers has also done front covers for magazines including The New Yorker, and album covers for musicians such as Kevin Johansen and Andrés Calamaro. Furthermore, he has founded the publishing company Común. His most recent book, for children, is called Flores salvajes. Liniers will share the secrets of his own particular universe with a Hay Festival audience. He will talk to Mariana H.

What are advertisements for? At this interesting, fun event, Tere Alcántara will explain all this and answer other questions, as well as teaching us how to make a homemade microphone with an empty milk carton, a piece of cloth, a hands-free set with a wire, glue and scissors.

The writer and journalist Laura Castellanos and the illustrator Brenda Castro present La marcha del #TerremotoFeminista, an illustrated work of non-fiction that contextualizes feminism, from the origins of the patriarchy to the feminist movements of the 21st century. Readers follow Sofi, a teenager who joins the demonstrations that are protesting the oppression of the patriarchal system, and with whom we learn about all the victories won, and about all that still remains to be done.

Later on, the participants will create their own stories in which the main characters are a flowerpot, a book, a TV or a mural.

Event HF7

Juan Gedovius

Beyond the white rabbit

Patio de la Delegación del Centro Histórico
Read more

If classic works have something in common, it is that they can be interpreted and reinterpreted again and again, each time finding new perspectives and possible meanings, and so each era has its own dialogue with the work. The entertaining and versatile Mexican illustrator, writer and musician Juan Gedovius presents Lewis Caroll’s great works, Alice in Wonderland, Through the Looking Glass and The Hunting of the Snark, illustrated by him. This activity is a look at the fantasy world of Lewis Carrol, with images shown to help the audience explore the English writer’s mythology. Here, Juan will share the story of Alice, the girl who, one summer’s day, saw a white rabbit with a jacket and a pocket watch, and followed it, falling into Wonderland and there discovering a strange, varied and unforgettable series of characters. Juan will share with us his own adventure of transforming this great story into his own images.

For children of all ages
