Writing First
Beyond Thirty-Nine

This book is a collection of articles, an offline offspring and a social initiative. It is also a sign of friendship and confidence, solid and full of rich voices, assorted topics and life experiences. Culture is the most unobtrusive and effective link, which binds individuals who want to share backgrounds and passion, generating energy. This book, too, is the result of this magic strength, and we hope it will be the first of a long chain of cultural achievements.
