Event 4

Nativel Preciado in conversation with Ana Gavín and Aurelio Loureiro

Two Loves for León

Venue: Museo de la Minería de Sabero (León)

The worst thing that can happen to a writer is to have a creative crisis and not know what is causing it. Could it be love? A hidden mystery? Perhaps even the geography of the place you are in is influencing and conditioning it. Journalist and writer Nativel Preciado will discuss this off the back of her recently published novel Palabras para Olivia (Words for Olivia), which is set in large part in the lands of León. She will do so in conversation with Ana Gavín, director of Editorial Relations at Grupo Planeta, and with Aurelio Loureiro, a writer from León who was director of Leer magazine.

Born in Madrid, Preciado has had a long career as a journalist since the times of the Spanish transition to democracy. She has received awards such as the Francisco Cerecedo, the Víctor de la Serna, the Pluma de Plata, the Premio de Honor de la Asociación de la Prensa and the Manuel Alcántara Prize for International Journalism. In addition to numerous essays, she has also written works of fiction such as El egoísta (1999 Planeta Prize finalist), Camino de hierro (Primavera Novel Prize 2007), Canta solo para mí (Fernando Lara Novel Prize 2014), and El santuario de los elefantes (Azorín Prize 2022).

There will be a book signing at the end of the event
