A Big Bewitching Basque Weekend in Northern Nevada

Well, last weekend was Nevada Day, but this weekend (still with giant grins on our faces from all the love we got at the renaming ceremony on Wednesday night) we are really excited to have not one, not two, but three amazing Basque cultural events happening this weekend in Northern Nevada.

First off, author Begoña Echeverria is traveling up from Chino to do 2 readings and performances for her great novel, The Hammer of Witches, the first one on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. with our friends at JTs restaurant in Gardnerville. After the reading there will be a no host lunch at the restaurant, so please come hungry!

Afterward, if you’re up for a drive, our own Joseba Zulaika will giving a talk in Fallon on Bilbao: The Autobiography of a City as a part of the Churchill Arts Council’s Talks Series. Joseba will be talking on Bilbao, and if you haven’t read it yet, check out his That Old Bilbao Moon.

Then, if you missed Begoña in Gardnerville, there will be a reprise on Sunday at the beautiful Sundance Bookstore in Reno!
