A festival of literature without accreditation or press office, without tickets online and cerimony.
The balada begins today and runs through Sunday - promising turmoil in the region of Vila Madalena and Pinheiros. The main events (book launches, debates, concerts) will take place on nine points in the region, like the Livraria da Vila, the Biblioteca Alceu Amoroso Lima, theCentro Cultural b_arco, the Mercearia São Pedro. In the 24th and 25th there will be a Ressaca Literária (Literature Hangover), with more attractions. All for free. The event mix everyone. You can actually have a coffee with your favorite author, share an idea, and even drink a beer. It is like a house party.

The opening ballad occurs in the Livraria da Vila at 11am, the honoree of the year, writer Lygia Fagundes Telles, will chat with readers. Actress Leandra Leal will read excerpts of Lygia. The list of special guests is extensive: Lauro César Muniz, Hugo Possolo, Marcelo Rubes Paiva, Cid Campos, Alice Ruiz, Jorge Furtado and many others.

Shows of Fabiana Cozza (today at 8:30 pm in the cultural b_arco) and the band Os Outros (Sunday at 8 pm, in the cultural b_arco) are also scheduled.
