Weekend: books n'Volver.
Just a reminder that the Indy Book Fair takes over St. Ann's Square Friday and Saturday all day, with a plethora of readings happening at the live literature cafe both afternoons from 1 pm. Loads of bookstalls, go spend some money and support independent booksellers and small publishers. More info here. I'll be there, trying NOT to buy any more books because we're out of shelf space at the moment... but seriously, like that's going to happen.
If you're in the mood for a movie, Almodovvar's Volver is playing at the Cornerhouse. I saw it. It's a typically magnificent blend of ghost story/touching family drama/oddball comedy, with a cast full of amazing women. Go see it if you like Pedro Almodovar (and who doesn't?) Get there early though; On Monday night it was as packed as I've ever seen it. Also had the worst pre-movie pizza I've had there yet, a barely cooked, oversauced and fearsome thing. Beware!
