Next Sunday, May 16, I am launching the Brazilian version of my book Quirkyalone, Sósingular: Um Manifesto Para Romanticos Irredutíveis with an event at Terra Brasilis Hostel as part of Santa Teresa‘s literary festival, FLIST.
I will actually read in Portuguese for the first time, which will be kind of amazing, and we’ll chat over caipirinhas about the qurkyalone movement, the translation of quirkyalone to sosingular, and the state of quirkyaloneness (or sosingular-ness) in Rio and Brazil.
When: Sunday, May 16, 3 pm
Where: Terra Brasilis, Rua Murtinho Nobre, 156, just opposite the Parque das Ruinas
What: A book launch party for SoSingular: Um Manifesto Para Romanticos Irredutíveis. Join us to learn about the quirkyalone movement worldwide and to talk about single life in Rio. Meet other quirkyalones (or sosingulares) over cairpirinhas!
A quirkyalone is a person who enjoys being single (or spending time alone) and so prefers to wait for the right person to come along rather than dating indiscriminately; relishing equal doses of solitude and friendship; attracted to freedom and possibility.
