Event 43

Silvia Bardelás and Xita Rubert in conversation

The novel and its challenges

Venue: Biblioteca Pública de Segovia

An event featuring two women of different generations and with something in common: both write fiction and both reflect on the challenges of the novel in the 21st century. What are the characteristics of the new writer in a society convulsed by change, at a time of both individual and collective uncertainty? The translator, publisher and teacher of Literary Creation, Silvia Bardelás, answers this question in her doctoral thesis, entitled Una teoría de la novela. Her latest novel is entitled Destiempo. Xita Rubert’s fictional debut is Mis días con los Knopp, and its success has led to her being welcomed as a writer with a brilliant future. She is currently preparing her thesis at Princeton University on the relationships between philosophy and literature.

Presented by Encarnación Aparicio Roda, coordinator of book clubs of the Segovia Penitentiary Centre.

Authors will sign their works at the end of the event
