Get to know EUPL 2020 Spanish laureate Irene Solà, as she presents the English translation of the EUPL-winning novel at the London Book Fair
Where: Author HQ
When: Thursday, 7 April, 11:45 - 12:30
A fearlessly creative and original new voice in Catalan literature, Irene Solà, brings to British audiences When I Sing, Mountains Dance, a novel that has been translated to more than 20 languages and is the winner of the European Union Prize for literature. Solà’s intensity and talent finds her British counterpart in multi-awarded author Daisy Johnson (known for Everything Under, Fen or Sisters). They will share with the audience their folktale atmospheres of imagination and myth, their unusual characters, and their literary dance with the strangeness of reality. This event will be chaired by Daniel Hahn.
This session is part of the Spotlight. Books in Catalan programme at the LBF.
