Event description

Description

Join our Spanish Book Club once a month, where we discuss contemporary and classic books in Spanish, whilst enjoying delicious food and drink from the author's country of birth. The book for February is the highly acclaimed El Fin de los Buenos Tiempos by Spanish author Ignacio Martínez de Pisón.

WHAT'S INCLUDED:

The participation fee includes a copy of the book, Spanish tapas & wine, and a session co-ordinated by our experienced tutor, Luis. The book club is held by the school, Spanish Marks, and all proceeds are going to the children's charities, Shaftesbury Young People and Asociación Fatima.

The maximum number of participants is 10, so we recommend to book today as there is great demand!

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

We have a relaxed atmosphere, with most of the discussion in Spanish. It is an event for those who love literature and Spanish, and want to spend an evening discussing the chosen book, whilst enjoying tapas and a glass of wine. It is not a language lesson, but an informal discussion about the book and it's themes, allowing you to practice Spanish in a warm, friendly and culturally-rich setting!

Receive a copy of El Fin de los Buenos Tiempos when you purchase a ticket, so you can read it in advance. Buy before 30th January, to receive free delivery of the book. Tickets bought after this date will need to collect the book from Hotel Strand Continental, 143 Strand, WC2R 1JA.

ABOUT EL FIN DE LOS BUENOS TIEMPOS AND LEVEL OF SPANISH:

Described as author, Ignacio Martínez de Pisón's best book, El Fin de los Buenos Tiempos explores three stages, three families, three trips and immerses you in the emotional bonds that govern relations between the characters. A holiday with an unexpected outcome, a humble but ambitious provincial soccer team, a return to a city after several years of absence. The protagonists of the stories are marveled by secrets, revealing accusations, love and the relentless passage of time.

If you can understand around 80% of the below extract, we recommend you joining us for this session!:

Aún no han pasado tres meses desde el día en que la doctora Rubio nos dijo que Marta estaba totalmente curada. Recuerdo que nos miró a través de sus gafas de montura de carey y nosotros contuvimos el aliento, temideno que fuera a aununciarnos la posibilidad de una recaída. Pero se quitó las gafas, las sostuvo un instante ante la cara como en un movimiento congelado por una cámara fotográfica y sonrió con una sonrisa que lo decía todo: "Está totalmente curada."

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 of great quality.

¡Esperamos verte pronto!
