Litreratura. Homenaje.
Por Palabra Abierta.

De manos del Legislador (MC) y expresidente de la Sociedad Argentina de Escritores (SADE) Jorge Alberto Giorno, Carlos Penelas recibió el reconocimiento “por su reconocida y destacada obra poética y literaria de alcance mundial”.

El acto se llevó a cabo en el salón Norberto La Porta de la Biblioteca Popular y Centro Cultural Carlos Sánchez Viamonte, sitio de interés cultural de la ciudad en donde Penelas coordina su taller literario.
Giorno destacó la trayectoria de Penelas, su obra poética y su relación con la ciudad de Buenos Aires, haciendo referencia a que con este reconocimiento se intenta valorar a los representantes de la cultura porteña.

Al comienzo del acto se leyeron adhesiones de Javier Sandomingo, Embajador de España en la Argentina, del Ateneo Obrero de Gijón, la Asociación de Escritores Chilenos, Alfredo Erias, Xornal de Betanzos, Ruy Farías y otros.

En un breve discurso, Penelas agradeció la distinción y se refirió a sus inicios en la literatura.

Por último, Rocío Danussi leyó dos poemas de Ofrenda de la luz, último libro recientemente publicado por Editorial Dunken.
