Event 70

Espido Freire and Alberto Rey in conversation

Pride and prejudices. Are things the way they tell us?

Venue: Teatro Juan Bravo

At a time of overexposure, hypercommunication and a continuous exchange of messages, videos, audios, web content… Are we really better informed than ever? Are things really the way they tell us? Are we genuinely the free society, without prejudice, that we think we are? Two outstanding figures from the world of literature and communication will talk about these vital matters. Featuring the writer Espido Freire, who had a spectacular entry onto the Spanish literary scene, becoming the youngest ever winner of the Planeta Prize aged just 25. Since then she has had an impressive literary career with novels, poetry and non-fiction, including books such as Soria Moria and De la Melancolía. Also appearing will be Alberto Rey, who offers astute and acerbic analysis of television series in his Asesino en serie blog for El Mundo. He is the author of the books La rebelión de los bigotes and Ni rubia ni pelirroja.

Once the event finishes, the authors will sign books in the venue.
