Author Carlos Ruiz Zafón in Conversation With Writers Bloc Founder Andrea Grossman

Goethe Institut Los Angeles (Los Angeles, CA)

Here’s your chance to hear author Carlos Ruiz Zafón (The Prisoner of Heaven) in conversation with Writers Bloc founder Andrea Grossman. Ruiz Zafón’s gorgeous, sprawling novels remind us that the terror of the Spanish Revolution is still palpable, and that healing comes through understanding the treasures and secrets of the past–through books and literature. The protagonists in Ruiz Zafón novels are often bookstore owners, writers — and literature itself. He weaves Spanish and Catalan history into the narratives, and thus provides a cultural context for his Cemetery of Forgotten Books series, a cultural treasure that only a chosen few individuals know about, or remember.
