Leyendo Argentina – Reading Argentina

 logos5        THE ANGLO-ARGENTINE SOCIETY

              Founded 1948

 

Leyendo Argentina – Reading Argentina

 

The AAS is very proud to launch Leyendo Argentina – Reading Argentina, a reading group of Argentinian literature. We are very happy to share this news with you, and hope you may be interested to take part in the project.

The main goal of Leyendo Argentina will be to explore, read and comment on Argentinian writers and books from recent decades, with a special emphasis on young authors. More information on the project can be found (in Spanish) at: https://leyendoargentina.wordpress.com/.

It’s very easy. If you are interested, you will only need to read the book, then join us at the session to talk about why the book has interested you. The session will be free of charge, but we will accept contributions.

Our first session will be on Wednesday 18th of May at 6.30PM at the offices of the AAS. The address is 7 New Quebec Street, London W1H 7RH.

In the first session we will take a few minutes to introduce the project in more detail, then answer any questions you may have. After the brief introduction, we will start on the first book.

“Tierra del fuego” by Sylvia Iparraguirre

The book can be found at several internet sites (Kindle option available). The English version is available at:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/1880684721/ref=tmm_pap_used_olp_sr?ie=UTF8&condition=used&qid=1459601562&sr=1-1

and the Spanish (original) version at:      https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/9505114141/ref=tmm_pap_used_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=used&qid=1461072799&sr=1-2

http://www.casadellibro.com/libro-la-tierra-del-fuego/9788466301787/753126

As our room for the session has limited capacity we kindly ask that you to confirm your attendance by email or phone. We will work on a first come, first served basis.

Finally, as we would like to have the full Argentinian experience, glasses of Argentine wine will be available for purchase during the session.

The sessions are led by Mr Andrés Tacsir and Mrs Alicia Alborja. We look forward to seeing you in our first meeting.

Latin American Societies Golf Day

Latin American Societies Golf Day

download

Dear All,

I am writing to you again this year to bring the above-captioned event to the attention of all Anglo-Latin American Societies, in the hope that we will have a large turn-out of players, and follow that with an enjoyable lunch. I took over the organisation of the event 4 years ago from David Bouch, who continues to provide assistance to me “from the wings”.

The main trophy, the splendid Ambassadors’ Cup, was presented by the Ambassadors of Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Mexico in 1950, and has been competed for every year since then, making this, 2015, the 66th year. Last year’s winner, representing LAGS and the Anglo Argentine Society, was John Shearer. We will also be competing for The Rose Bowl, which will go to the highest scoring member of the Anglo Argentine Society, the Jangara ditto the Anglo Brazilian Society, The Chile Cup, ditto the Anglo Chilean Society, the Callum Sharkey Trophy for the highest placed Lady, and finally the “LOS DEMAS”, presented by Lan Chile, for the highest points scorer not having won one of the previously mentioned Cups. There will also be a prize for the Best Guest and several Nearest-the-Pin and Longest Drive prizes.

West Surrey Golf Club, at Enton, near Godalming, Surrey, has hosted the event for the last several years, and always puts on a very warm welcome to all players, following up the golf with a traditional and hearty lunch. The par-71 course, which celebrated its centenary in 2010, is in a beautiful parkland setting and maintained to a very high standard. The course has been reserved for us from 8.45 until 10am, and the competition will be over 18 holes (Stableford Scoring), playing in flights of three. Entry is open to all members (with recognised handicaps) of the various Anglo Latin American Societies, who may also bring guests.

The cost for the day will be £67.00 for coffee (from 8am), golf and a carvery lunch. This cost is the same as it was last year, and, considering the quality of the course, represents very good value. The fee for a WSGC member will be £35, and for those having lunch only will be £25.

Below is the form needed for completion by all interested players, plus those intending to attend only the lunch, and would be most grateful if you could please bring this important, long-standing and most enjoyable event to the attention of all your members. If anyone has any questions, please revert to me by email or by telephone on 01483-892382.

With very best wishes,

Yours sincerely

Alan Wilkinson

Lecture: San Martín and his brothers in the War of the Pyrenees

Lecture: San Martín and his brothers in the War of the Pyrenees

“San Martín and his brothers in the War of the Pyrenees”

 a Lecture by Thomas Hudson OBE.

                      Tuesday 23rd June 2015, 6.30pm, at St. Peter’s Church, Eaton Square,                    

119 Eaton Square, London SW1W 9AL

anglo

 The Anglo Argentine Society and the British San Martín Institute are pleased to announce a lecture about “San Martin and his brothers in the War of the Pyrenees”, by Thomas Hudson.

 

The very name of San Martín provokes interest, esteem and admiration on account of his character, way of being and deeds. He lived a relatively long life, in spite of the toughest of campaigns, wounds and illnesses. He got to know many people across two continents, from family, leaders, relatives, comrades, friends and enemies. His achievements include military campaigns in Spain, Portugal, at sea, Argentina, crossing the Andes with his Army, Chile and Perú.

 

The objectives of the British San Martín Institute are:

*To honour and keep alive the memory of General José de San Martín, the Liberator of Argentina, Chile and Perú.

* To disseminate  knowledge about his life, personality and ideas, his military, civilian and moral qualities, by means of lectures, anniversary celebrations, battle commemorations, liaising with Argentine, Chilean and Peruvian friends.

* To promote university and other research relating to San Martín and his collaborators, particularly to the Britons who supported him during his campaigns.

* Above all, to strengthen the long-lasting friendship which has existed between the United Kingdom and Argentina since the beginning of the 19th century.

 

Thanks to the generosity of The Anglo-Argentine Society, the British San Martín Institute is housed at the Society’s premises at 7 New Quebec Street, London W1.  The Honorary President of the Institute is The Baroness Hooper CMG and the Chairman is Alan Tabbush OBE.  The Institute has been founded with the encouragement of the Instituto Nacional Sanmartiniano of Buenos Aires.
