Book Fair

Today I went to the Anthropology and History Book Fair, held at the National Anthropology Museum, which has been going on since September 22 and ends tomorrow. Brazil is the guest country this year. There are book presentations, conferences and discussions, with topics such as endangered languages, African descendants in Latin America, history and culture of indigenous groups in Mexico and traditional music. There are also movies, workshops, art activities, and musical performances, as well as a ton of book venders. I browsed books (and came home with two) as I listed to a Son Jarocho group, followed by a musical group from Colombia.
