Event in Madrid with Jesús Carrasco on the 25th of November

On the 25th of November, the Antonio Machado bookstore has welcomed Jesús Carrasco, Spanish winner of the 2016 European Union Prize for Literature who - since his victory - is not really an up-and-coming talent anymore, but rather one of Europe's well-established young writers. The event was aptly held in the beautiful and imposing Círculo de Bellas Artes building in the center of Madrid.

Around 20 people have come to see the author talk with Elena Ramírez Pianeta, Editorial Director of the Spanish publisher of Carrasco (Seix Barral) and to ask questions from him afterwards.

Before the event, Mr. Carrasco gave a short interview on his inspirations and artistic ambitions.
