We have welcomed exponents of the arts, sciences and literature:  Prof. Gregory Rabassa,; the brazilinista Kenneth Maxwell; the historian Jordan Young; the writer and journalist Luiz Carlos Lisboa; dozens of writers, musicians, artists and actors such as former Miss Pernambuco and Vice Miss Brazil, Núbia Santana, Reinaldo Cotia Braga, Moema Caveiro Campos, and Sergio Duarte, poet and special ambassador at the United Nations.

We have already had exciting events such as “A Night in Soho” with dancing, music, and poetry. The “Festa Junina” opened the summer season with traditional costumes, food, dance, the quadrilha.  In addition, we have enjoyed special performances of samba and capoeira by sambista Quênia Ribeiro, and the capoeirista Caxias.
