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 light bites 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 La Sombra del Viento when you purchase a ticket, so you can read it in advance. Buy before 10th April, 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 LA SOMBRA DEL VIENTO AND LEVEL OF SPANISH:

This international bestseller is set in 1945, when a boy is led by his father to a mysterious place hidden in the heart of the old city: The Cemetery of the Forgotten Books. There, he finds a cursed book that changes the course of his life and drags him into a labyrinth of intrigues and secrets buried in the dark soul of the city. La Sombra del Viento is a literary mystery set in the Barcelona in the first half of the twentieth century, from the last splendors of Modernism to the darkness of the postwar period. Combining the techniques of the story of intrigue and suspense, La Sombra del Viento is above all a tragic love story whose echo is projected through time. With great narrative force, Carlos Ruiz Zafón intertwines plots and enigmas in an unforgettable story about the secrets of the heart and the charm ofbooks whose intrigue is maintained until the last page.

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

Un secreto vale lo que aquellos de quienes tenemos que guardarlo. Al despertar, mi primer impulso fue hacer partícipe de la existencia del Cementerio de los Libros Olvidados a mi mejor amigo. Tomás Aguilar era un campañero de estudios que dedicaba su tiempo libre y su talento a la invención de artilugios ingeniosísimos pero de escasa aplicación práctica, como el dardo aerostático o la peonza dinamo.

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!
