Conto alla rovescia per Strani Al Cubo!

Conclusasi con successo la Campagna Kickstarter per Strani Al Cubo, edizione 2017 di Stranimondi – festival di letteratura fantastica, weird e di fantascienza che si terrà a Milano il 14/15 ottobre prossimi presso UESM- Casa dei Giochi – si entra ora nella fase “countdown”!

Tra poco meno di un mese infatti gli appassionati di “letteratura strana” potranno partecipare alle conferenze e incontri con ospiti nazionali e internazionali come Valerio Evangelisti (in connessione), Pat Cadigan, Anne-Sylvie Salzman, Jan Siegel, Alda Teodorani, e l’Artista Paolo Barbieri, assistere alle presentazioni librarie delle principali Case Editrice del fantastico e del weird italiano, ammirare la mostra delle opere di Paolo Barbieri, rilassarsi tra amici chiacchierando su libri, Autori e quant’altro, e molto altro.

Chi non fosse riuscito a prenotare il proprio ingresso esclusivo attraverso la campagna Kickstarter, potrà prenotare l’ingresso per la parte a pagamento (conferenze e kaffeeklatsches, mentre l’accesso all’area espositiva e alle presentazioni librarie è completamente gratuito) a questo link, fino a qualche giorno prima dell’evento. Sarà poi ovviamente possibile richiedere il proprio pass anche in loco, alla reception di Stranimondi.

Il programma definitivo sarà pubblicato a breve: tutte le informazioni utili saranno man mano pubblicato sul sito ufficiale della manifestazione.

Segnaliamo inoltre che durante l’evento sarà presentato in anteprima un nuovo volume della Collana Modern Weird di Edizioni Hypnos dedicato completamente ai racconti di Anne-Sylvie Salzman.
