Countless great writers will make their way to Brazil this year for the country’s major literary events, such as the Paraty International Literary Festival, the Jornada Nacional de Literatura and the Rio de Janeiro International Book Fair. Another even more exclusive event is Fronteiras do Pensamento (Frontiers of Thought), a monthly lecture series in São Paulo and Porto Alegre. Speakers scheduled so far include Zygmunt Bauman, Orhan Pamuk, Luc Ferry, Alain de Botton, Fredric Jameson, Shirin Ebadi, Miguel Nicolelis and Lech Walesa. Such high calibre speakers don’t come cheap: tickets for the series range from US $1,000 to US $1,300.
