Event 25

Mónica Rouanet and Ana Requena in conversation with Laura Ventura

A new perspective for the detective novel

Venue: Biblioteca Pública de Segovia

Feminism has come to change the way we look at the world. How is this perspective influencing the detective novel? Can we talk about a change of paradigm, with feminism altering the way violence and pleasure are narrated? These matters are put on the table at an event featuring the writers Mónica Rouanet and Ana Requena. Rouanet is a psychologist, educator and author of publishing successes such as Despiértame cuando llegue septiembre and No oigo a los niños jugar. Her latest novel, the thriller Nada importante, deals with sexist violence and femicide. Requena specializes in gender matters, and is chief writer on the subject with eldiario.es, a news outlet that she co-founded. Her blog Micromachismos has obtained several awards. She is the author of the books of essay Cómo identificar los micromachismos and Feminismo vibrante. Si no hay placer no es nuestra revolución.

They talk to Dr Laura Ventura, a professor of Literature at Carlos III University who writes for the Argentine newspaper La Nación.

Once the event is over, both authors will sign books at the Library.
