On St. Valentine ’s Day) Bombadil Publishing hasd a delegation in the beautiful El Salvadorian city of Ahuachapán near the border to Guatemala. We got an invitation to celebrate the local festivity at this warm and peaceful city; the invitation was extended by ASCARA , an Art and Culture Association and our two mentors in Ahuachapán: Mr. Guillermo Galicia and Mr. Marco Antonio Lima who had arranged a big meet attended by a good crowd.
Our host gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived early in the morning and we met of a lot of important people of the city, writers, a magnificent theater group, poetry readers and many others.
I was given the honor, as Executive Director of Bombadil Publishing, to introduce myself to the Ahuachapán society, which has a lot of young writers writing a book for Bombadil Publishing. There are three young writers whom are in the final process of editing their books. These young writers are: Luis Guillermo Ibañez, 15 years, (who unfortunately was sick) with his book “El gran día de Al-Zaidi”, Ricardo Rodriguez, 14 years, with his book “Fábrica Literaria” and Mauricio Zepeda, 15 years, with his book “Los Cuentos de la Montaña”
I proudly introduced those young writers not only to Ahuachapán but to the entire world. I was delighted to be able to introduce Bombadil Publishing to many others young writers to our big Bombadil Family. They are wonderful and spirited and transmit the Bombadil Publishing feelings all around the world, those feelings which are inspiring the young writers to write their ideas, their passions, their future to the world, as a heritage to the future generations.
Our gratitude to the young Alex Deras for his magnificent collaboration which was an important part of our visit to Ahuachapán,
We thank to the All Ahuachapán community for the medal we got as “Merit Visitors” And to the beautiful owner of the Restaurant “El Rincon” for her tasty and delight food.
Come young all over the world and join to the Bombadil Publishing revolution!
