Enduring awardness

When we moved to Bloom Yellow at Albergue we came with a purpose. The mission to bring authors and writers close to the public and get them together with the readers. If not in flesh in every ways possible just to create the flux of their words to the fountain where one could drink them. We started at our open day with a session about Salman Rushdie and his last novel, The Enchantress of Florence, we invited one side and the other, the ones who would tell and the ones who would listen, and we believe, as it happened with us, that both sides took something new when they left. That's one piece of our engine that starts running. One step of the ladder we want to climb. And ahead we want to take you with us.
For now we want to tell - and it's nothing really new as it happened two days ago - that our author of the month at Bloom Yellow, Salman Rushdie, won the Best of Booker prizes. The Booker Prize is a literary award given each year for the best original full-length novel, written in the English language, by a citizen of either the Commonwealth of Nations or the Republic of Ireland. The winner is generally assured of international renown and success.
Midnight's Children, by Rushdie, won this prize in 1981. In 1993 was chosen again as the best novel to win the award in the first 25 years of its existence, it was named the Booker of Bookers Prize. On 8 of July, on a poll who brought readers from across the world, the same title was chosen as the Best of Booker. And so, after 27 years of its publication, Midnight's Children, gains another boost of its own genuine life.
That's it. At Bloom July is our crash test month. We have different things prepared and on wheels and we will tell them right away. Be there and stay tuned.
