Madrid Writer's Critique Group field trip to La Paloma

The Madrid Writer's Critique Group will host a field trip to the Fiestas de la Virgen de la Paloma on Saturday, August 15. We will meet at 9 p.m. at the corner of calle de Toledo and calle Maldonadas, which is also a La Latina Metro exit. Then we will wander off in search of limonada and literary inspiration.

All members and their friends, relatives, significant others, and anyone else who wants to come is welcome.

If you can't make it on time, try calling my cell phone, 669 991 783, to find out where we are and join us.

We're holding the field trip on Saturday rather than on our usual Tuesday meeting date because there are no fiestas castizas events on Tuesday this year.

The Fiestas de La Paloma are being held through August 16, so if you can't join us Saturday, you may wish to go on your own at a different time. Here's the full schedule:

Regular meetings of the Madrid Writer's Critique Group are suspended during August and will resume on Tuesday, September 1, at 9 p.m. at Café Isadora, calle Divino Pastor 14, barrio de Malasaña.

¡Viva la Virgen de la Paloma!
