A chat with Kelly Clayton, the owner of Semi-Colon Books in Santa Ana, and five English-language authors who will participate in Semi-Colon’s first Local Author Fair. The group discusses the joys and occasional isolation of reading and writing in Costa Rica, and the power of bringing women writers together.
We’re El Colectivo 506, a women-led, independent news organization focused on solutions journalism and rural Costa Rica.
