Fundación El Libro director Adamo resigns
Gabriela Adamo, who has been in charge of organizing the BA Book Fair since 2011, resigned yesterday just a few days after the end of this year’s edition. A peculiar decision, taking into consideration the record numbers on visits and sales that the Book Fair showed in its latest edition.
Amid speculations on her departure, the now ex-director told reporters that “It was not because of political reasons, but because of a series of personal and professional issues that make it senseless to continue in this position ... This was a wearing-out process of an institution with vested interests everywhere. My priorities are an authentic promotion of reading and an open, modern and international cultural program and I feel those are not the priorities of the Council”.
