La charla cuenta la experiencia de la iniciativa Biblioghetto que lleva cerca de 15 años haciendo promoción de lectura en entornos urbanos no convencionales, como las calles, los parques, los expendios de drogas y los barrios con mayor índice de violencia en la ciudad de Cali, la más violenta de Colombia. Hemos desarrollado cerca de 900 talleres de lectura y escritura y articulado cerca de 100 proyectos de prevención de la violencia a través de la lectura y la escritura con nuestra biblioteca popular e itinerante.
