F.L.I.A. is back! (2015)

FLIA is back! If you are in Barcelona, or you don’t know what to do: This saturday (3 October, 2015) is going to take place the third edition of the FLIA festival (Independent selfpublished book fair, from the catalan Fira del llibre independent autoeditat). The fair takes place at Sóller square (Plaça Sóller) at the Porta neighbourhood in Nou Barris (Barcelona). You can get there by Metro and stop at Virrei Amat (L5) or Llucmajor (L4), all them, about 5 minutes walking.

For this edition they are plenty of activities, starting at 10:00 o’clock with the Pin Tam Pon workshop, followed by a first talk by KurdisCat (12:00h) and another about Porta neighbourhood (…means Door. :P) at 13:30.

"No wave" by Darry Reid

You can have you lunch or/and drinks at the bar. There is going to be one there open all day (during the fair hours) with beers and home made food. Delicious! At the afternoon two talks are going to close the festival, a first one about the #MACBAgate La Bestia y el repartidor de butano and a last one, presenting La Polilla, a occupied kiosk at the Revolution square at Vila de Gràcia.

"Onion rings" by Pere Saguer

This are the activities, but of course, the main purpose is the zine and book fair is the hundred of tables showcasing the best printed stuff. Bad Weather press we are going to be there with the last three new publications: the “No Wave” photozine by Darry Reid and two comic / illustration zines, “Hit me on” by the Indonesian artist Brojjol and “Onion Rings” by Pere Saguer. We are going to have some left copies from other publications and we are looking forward for a special present for the occasion. Want to know what? Just come, say hi and you'll know.
