Join our Online Spanish Book Club for a live discussion in Spanish on the bestselling novel, La Vida Imaginaria by Mara Torres.

Recommended for those who have at least an intermediate level of Spanish.

WHAT'S INCLUDED:

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

We have a relaxed atmosphere with discussion in Spanish. It is an event for those who love literature and speaking Spanish, and want to spend an evening discussing the chosen book. It is not a language lesson, but an informal discussion about the book and it's themes, allowing you to practice Spanish with a really friendly group!

We will meet online via Zoom Web Conferencing. A link to the classroom will be sent to you before the event.

You can buy the e-book or access an online sample of the book at Google Books here.

ABOUT LA VIDA IMAGINARIA AND LEVEL OF SPANISH:

Finalist for the coveted Premio Planeta in 2012, La Vida Imaginaria follows the life of the central character, Nata. What goes through your head when the person you love is leaving? What do you do with your life when you have to think about it again? Do you make it up? Nata's world is filled with questions when Beto leaves her. But time does not stop, and the episodes that Nata tells of her own story take her to a place where everything is possible again.

The storyline unconventionally breaks away from the traditional beginning, middle, and end plot set-up, leaving readers enthralled in this coming-of-age story.

If you understand approximately 80% of the below, we recommend you join us for the book club. All discussion will be in Spanish.

La vida es una mierda. Que yo no digo siempre, digo ahora. Que yo no digo que la vida sea una mierda desde que nací, yo digo estas días, estas semanas, estos meses. Estos en los que abro la ventana por las mañanas y me da igual si el pruno que hay enfrente está florido o se ha podrido. Estos meses que no tienen color, que ni siquiera son el blanco y negro, sino que son planos. Como las hojas del calendario, como las mañanas en el curro, como las tardes en las que me tiro en este sofá y miro atentamente la pared hasta que todo está emborronado y tengo que parpadear porque se me ha nublado la vista.

FUTURE EVENTS:

The book club is held once a month, with a different book each month. We change the country, theme and style of literature, and always choose highly acclaimed books by great authors. ¡Esperamos verte pronto!
