ES BALUARD CELEBRATES THE BOOKS DAY 2011 WITH ACTIVITIES

Es Baluard will take place, during April, a series of activities to celebrate the Books Day 2011. Although the festivity is on April 23 , the museum will carry out from April 12  to 28 a micro-story contest at Facebook (together with the Can Sales Palma's Public Library), discounts and 2x1 purchasing Es Baluard's catalogues, guided tours on the exhibition "Eduardo Arroyo. Painting Literature" and bookcrossing.

MICRO-STORIES CONTEST AT FACEBOOK

Es Baluard and Palma's Can Sales Public Library will carry out for the first time a micro-stories contest at Facebook. Everyone interested in participate must become friend of the Es Baluard's or Can Sales's Facebook profiles. Until April 26  you can write a maximum of two micro-stories on the wall of the group we've created (*). The tales must be in Catalan or Spanish and the argument must be the museum Es Baluard (an exhibition, the museum in general, and anecdote, etc). Remember that the maximum allowed by Facebook are 255 characters. So this is is the maximum lenght of the tales. The prizes are:

  • First prize: a set of Es Baluard gifts and a set of books.
  • Second prize: a set of books.
