Summer is once again around the corner, and even though this year is a little different because of COVID-19, that doesn’t mean you can’t have a great time from your home at Cumbre del Sol. To make our summer more enjoyable, the Poble Noe de Benitachell Town Hall has launched a “Literature Online” programme through the municipal library.

This initiative aims to bring literature into homes across the municipality in the most entertaining way possible. From Thursday, June 11th to the 13th of August, the town hall will upload literary video workshops to its YouTube channel and social media profiles. “Literature Online” will delve into two main themes: literature-inspired recipes and feminist literature.

First of all, the literary-inspired recipe workshops are designed to make the summer a blast for all the kids at home. These videos will also shine a spotlight on some of the most famous literary works. Children will learn to cook alongside Harry Potter, Games of Thrones and Don Quixote of La Mancha. Get ready and don’t miss out on this literary opportunity on the following Saturdays at 11:30 am:  June 13th, July 11th and August 8th!

This programme will also feature reviews of the most important literary works that feature women as their main protagonists. These video-workshops will include the following books: We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie; A Room of One’s Own by the famous British writer, Virginia Woolf; Like Water for Chocolate, an intense novel by the Mexican author, Laura Esquivel; and The Feminine Mystique by Pulitzer Prize winner, Betty Friedman. The workshops will be uploaded at 7:00 pm on Thursday, June 11th and 25th, July 16th, and August 13th. Don’t forget to write it down so you don’t miss it!

Furthermore, the fun doesn’t have to stop when the videos are over. You can also send in photos and videos of your recipes, as well as participate in debates and conversations about the books that were reviewed.

You’ll be able to immerse yourself in the greatest literary works and enjoy yourself to the fullest this summer, and all of this without having to leave home! Whether you’re on your terrace, sunbathing by the pool or lounging in your spacious dining room, you’ll be able to make the most of your two greatest passions: literature and summer on the Costa Blanca.
