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 -from January to April- will read authors such as Julio Cortázar, Jorge Luis Borges, Samanta Schweblin and Mariana Sández, among others. The second session of the series is “Compromiso, vida y Literatura” where will be read El milagro secreto (Ficciones) and Deustches Requiem (El aleph) 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.

Activity in Spanish (minimum level B2.1)
