Rony Oren joined a delegation of Israeli writers, academics and musicians as the guest nation of honor at this year’s Guadalajara International Book Fair in Mexico. The highly anticipated event with over 700,000 visitors lived up to all expectations. Rony’s series of master classes held in the 5,000 square-foot Israeli pavilion was consistently packed out by children and adults. At the sessions the new Spanish edition Secrets of Clay series published by Atlantida in Argentina were presented for the first time.

Following the book fair, was a packed events schedule for Rony Oren in Mexico City. Rony gave a succession of singular workshops for people with special needs at the Kadima Center. Part of the A-Ni-Ma+ Center’s outreach activity program abroad, the highly successful workshops were both unique and heart-warming. In equally high demand, Rony presented more than twenty master classes around the city, generating a great deal of media interest and each proving more popular than the previous.
