One Hundred Miles from Manhattan

Lecture tour 2014/2015.

The balanced mixed of journalism and humor that filters throughout the book “100 Miles from Manhattan” is the formula that Guillermo Fesser uses to give speeches and conduct workshops at Universities, High Schools and Cultural centers.



Lecture Description:  Have you been thinking about writing a book or a play and can´t decide on a good story?  Stop worrying about the plot. All you need to do is to find some good characters. Where? Anywhere and everywhere.  There are plenty of people to get ideas from… since everybody has something in their life that is fascinating.  It just takes a lot of patience and passion to discover it.  This lecture offers you some hints on how to get exiting material from any person you may meet or already know, so you can write a great story….. or simply just have a few more interesting social encounters to add to your life.
