The literary career of Carme Riera, writer, screenwriter, professor and academic at the RAE, is dotted with awards that underline her many contributions to the different genres through which her writing has traveled: from the short story to the essay, passing through the novel in its different forms, children's literature, autofiction... The Premio Nacional de Narrativa for El último azul, the Sant Jordi Prize for La mitad del alma, or the National Award for Spanish Letters in 2015 are just three examples of the many awards received. Her works have been translated into twenty languages. Some of her literary studies and anthologies have remained in the canon of the genre, such as Partidarios de la felicidad, about the poets of the Barcelona School. A bilingual writer in Catalan and Spanish, translator of her own work, Riera has applied the same passion and erudition she has applied to her entire career to a character who used this same recipe in her work as a mythical literary agent: Carmen Balcells, traficante de palabras is her latest work, a biography that brings two great women face to face.
Riera will talk to journalist and writer Angélica Tanarro.
