The Hypercritic Weekly Newsletter
Dear Hypercritics, 
This week represents a new milestone for us.
We have begun our coverage of the 34th Salone Internazionale del Libro di Torino, Italy, through Monday. 
From Thursday through Sunday, also in Turin, you can finally meet us in the first Hypercritic Microfestival, in the courtyard of the Borgopo’ bookstore at 10 Via Ornato, at 8:30 pm. 
Over four evenings, with contributions from guests and Hypercritic editors, we will explore the Paths of Wild Hearts, the theme of this year’s Salone del Libro. 
Just a taste of these themes we also offer in this week’s newsletter.
