  • DATE

  • TIME

    6:30 pm to 8:00 pm



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 discover the most promising new writers. Sessions also approach literature through bibliotherapy, assuming that reading and writing have good properties for readers.

This new series in Spring -from May to July- will be dedicated to “Boys and masculinities” and readings from Gabriel García Márquez, Abelardo Castillo, Selva Almada, Samanta Schweblin or Jorge Luis Borges among others. In the sixth session, we will read Por las azoteas (Las botellas y los hombres) by Julio Ramón Ribeyro and La noche de los dones (El libro de arena) by Jorge Luis Borges.

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.
