Marjorie Kanter Holds "Journal Keeping Workshop"


Join writer Marjorie Kanter to explore journal keeping -- explore or build a habit, collect your experiences and exercise your creativity and writing. This talk-workshop is an introduction to process-oriented journal keeping. Using words and images, she will focus on observing, gathering, playing with, and recording experiences. Are you new to Madrid? Or have you been around for some time? We will visit memory lane and also what's going on right here and now. Do you want to be sure to record what you see and feel -- keep a record for yourself, or to share with your family and friends? We will consider opening up the mind and getting your flow going. Meant for both those who already keep a journal and those new to the experience. Marjorie will share her experiences with journal keeping as the first step in her becoming a writer. Why keep a journal? How do you start? What do you do with it? How do you keep it going? What do you put in it? We´ll be starting off with coffee at 11 a.m. and then going downstairs to hear Marjorie.

Javier Vasallo Presents "Entre Claquetas"


We are honored to have an evening with Javier Vasallo, the husband of long-time AWC member, Debby Vasallo. Javier has written a book recounting his experiences while head of Buena Vista International film distribution company. Almost twenty years with Disney gave him ample provi-sions to delight us with filming anecdotes, encounters with actors, movie promotions, and premieres. It has been a great critical success since its presentation at the San Sebastian Film Festival. Javier will give an informal talk about the book followed by a question and answer period, plus book signing for those interested. To enliven our evening, we will be doing our Wine and Tapas format, so PLEASE BRING TAPAS AND A BOTTLE OF WINE. Don't forget to sign up with Nancy at the clubhouse or by phone for this memorable occasion! Spouses, partners and friends are welcome to join us.
