BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Nobel Prize-winning author Mario Vargas Llosa thanked Argentina's president Thursday for preventing Argentine intellectuals from blocking his keynote address at the nation's annual book fair. The Peruvian writer said that he hoped Cristina Fernandez's insistence on freedom of expression would be contagious in Argentina, and that her followers also respect the right of everyone to share ideas, including opposition newspapers that feel threatened by her government. Vargas Llosa is a fierce defender of personal and economic liberties who has criticized the policies and alleged corruption of the Fernandez government.
