Event 25

Elia Barceló in conversation with Marisol Teso

Women with experience

Venue: La Alhóndiga. Sede de Gales / Llwyfan Cymru

Throughout society, the role of women has not yet reached full equality with that of men. One of the most important issues is the invisibilisation of women over the age of 50, which occurs both in life —with professional, emotional and sexual obstacles— and in art, where they are not represented or offered models they can identify with. Elia Barceló, in her literary work, aims to give voice and prominence to women who, with extensive life experience behind them, still have a long future ahead. She will talk about this with Marisol Teso, head of Culture at Mediaset.

Barceló is considered one of the most versatile authors on the current literary scene, as well as one of the most prestigious in the field of fantasy and science fiction. She has published 30 novels, some for adults and others for young people, and some 90 short stories, in Spain and abroad. She is the author of highly successful works such as El color del silencio, El secreto del orfebre, Las largas sombras, El eco de la piel, La noche de plata, Muerte en Santa Rita and the most recent, Amores que matan. She has won numerous awards. In 2020, she was awarded the National Literature Prize in the Children's and Young People's category for El efecto Frankenstein (The Frankenstein Effect).

At the end of the event, the author will sign copies of her books at the book stall on Calle Real.
