Instituto Cervantes in Manchester is launching a new edition of its Latin American Literature Reading Club led by Dr Mariana Casale. A space aimed at native and non-native speakers to discover the new styles and narratives of Latin American literature, through established authors and also discovering the most promising new writers.

Sessions also approach literature through bibliotherapy, assuming that reading and writing have good properties for readers.
This spring edition continues with the theme “Losing it: Perceptions on Mental Health in Contemporary Latin American Literature”, reading Latin American writers such as María Fernanda Ampuero, Mariana Enríquez, Samanta Schwblin, Katy Adaui, Mariana Torres, Julio Cortázar and Gabriel García Márquez.

The session will be in Spanish and by Zoom free software.

Dr Mariana Casale: MA in English Literature (London), PhD Latin American Cultural Studies (Manchester), doctoral thesis on Jorge Luis Borges. Specialist in comparative literature, short and experimental fiction, and Narrative Bibliotherapy. Literary consultant, facilitator and trainer.
