Zoé Valdés, Manuel Vicent and Almudena Grandes with Juan David Correa

Memory talks

Cartagena 2010 , 
Literature can be described as a means of creating memory – that is, we remember and reinvent the past, and by doing so, we make literature. To regain the past, to wonder about its impact in our present, or to question its apparent irrefutability, are matters that belong to literary memory. With Zoé Valdés, writer, poet and Member of the Order of Arts and Letters in France; Manuel Vicent, Spanish writer and winner of the Alfaguara Prize in 1999 with Sound of the Sea and the Nadal Prize in 1986 with Balada de Caín, and Almudena Grandes, author of The Frozen Heart, in conversation with the journalist Juan David Correa.
