Socrates on Futebol and Brazil, July 18 at London Literary Festival, July 1 to 18

June 28, 2010

The Socrates appearance at the festival will be a team effort as program notes:

"Sócrates is a Brazilian legend, best known as the captain of the great Brazilian football team of the eighties - the team of Zico, Falcão and Éder - and subsequently one of the nation's leading cultural commentators. Socrates is joined by José Miguel Wisniek, one of Brazil's leading composers and author of Veneno Remédio - O futebol e o Brasil (Poisonous Remedy - Football and Brazil), and Alex Bellos, a London-based writer and broadcaster specializing in Brazil, and author of Futebol - The Brazilian Way of Life."

The Futebol and Brazil trio (July 18, 5 PM) is one of the many offerings of Brazilian Words itself one element of Festival Brazil (June 19-September 9).

In different spheres, Brazilian Words also invited Twins Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, the hottest comic book artists in Brazil, on July 5.

London Literary Festival opens on July 1 at Southbank Centre and runs until July 18.
