    daca esti prin zona te astept cu drag vineri, 12 iunie, de la ora 12.00, la biblioteca judeteana petre dulfu din baia mare, la o dubla lansare de carte, in prezenta autorilor
    indicii anatomice – oana stoica mujea
    blestemul manuscrisului – bogdan hrib
    iar daca iti gasesti un pic de timp sa scrii si la tine pe blog despre eveniment, o sa pui o, vorba aia, caramida intru propovaduirea culturii 🙂
    te astept
