Stu of Winstonsdad's Blog and Richard of Caravana de recuerdos, two of the most discriminating readers that I know, will be hosting a month-long festival of Spanish language literature.
July is the golden month of opportunities for encountering Spanish literature in the original or in translation. The line-up of reading/film viewing is as follows.
- Week 1, 6-8 July: Group viewing of the 1976s classic film Cria Cuervos, written and directed by Carlos Saura
- Week 2, 13-15 July: Reading of A Brief Life by Juan Carlos Onetti
- Week 3, 20-22 July: Reading of Bartleby & Co. by Enrique Vila-Matas
- Week 4: Link round-up
The Vila-Matas week is a shoo-in for me. And I'm eyeing other enticing titles as well.
You can register for this challenge at Stu's or Richard's post.
