Fermín Herrero and Carlos Aganzo in conversation

Dialogues with the Land. The future of 'Emtpy Spain'

Segovia 2021, 

Rural depopulation, culture and a need to return to nature are the themes that will occupy this meeting between two writers: Fermín Herrero and Carlos Aganzo. The poetry of Fermín Herrero, winner of the Castile and Leon Literature Prize, has become a symbol of the España vacía, or ‘Empty Spain’. The poet and journalist Carlos Aganzo is linked to the El Norte de Castilla, Miguel Delibes’ newspaper, a publication that is profoundly involved with the countryside and the rural world. Natural and cultural heritage come together to give voice to the land, at an event in which the Hay Festival extends its arms, from Segovia, around Castile and Leon.

This event will be live streamed.
