Literaldia: three weeks celebrating Basque literature

The new edition of this long-standing literature festival will bring us work by an number of different Basque writers until 27 April.

If you’re interested in literature, you’re obviously interested in keeping abreast of new developments and you’ll probably be motivated to explore new territories and new cultures. Now, ask yourself: what do you know about the literature that’s being written in the Basque Country in the Basque language? If your answer to that question is not a great deal, then you should check out the 14th edition of the Literaldia Festival.  There you will get the chance to meet veteran and debuting writers, poets and independent publishers through book presentations, informal meetings, interviews and round-table discussions. The festival begins on 6 April with a book gymkhana in the city, continues on Saturday 7 April with a musical dinner, and won’t come to an end until 27 April.

Among the most interesting activities at Literaldia, we will find the following: a translation workshop at Casa de los Navarros (various sessions starting on 10 April), a poetic, visual and gastronomic recital with Luisa Etxeberria on 14 April, a poetic spectacle with Kirmen Uribe and Mikel Urdangarin at the Agustí Centelles library in the Eixample on 18 April, and presentations of books like the last one by Koldo Izaguirre, ¿Quién quiere el fuego, Mr. Churchill ? on 19 April. Literaldia will also be active during the Sant Jordi celebrations, and in its final week will receive visits by writers and intellectuals such as Iban Zaldua, Suso de Toro and Joseba Sarrionandia.
