Patria (‘Homeland’) has been the greatest phenomenon of Spanish literature in recent times. Its adaptation to the screen will also make broadcasting history: it will be the first entirely Spanish series produced by the prestigious HBO for television. Fernando Aramburu, its author, and Aitor Gabilondo, scriptwriter and producer of the series, talk about the creative process in which they were both involved. With the production stage concluded and the filming over they will make their first public appearance at the Hay Festival Segovia. The novel continues to expand internationally: it has been translated into all European languages and has sold more than one and a half million copies across the world. The première of the television version is scheduled for 2020. Both will talk with the writer and journalist who has closely followed the entire process, Jesús Ruiz Mantilla.
