Starting this Wednesday, at 7:00 p.m., the Royal Hospital of Mercy in Marbella will host the ‘Library of Writers’ cycle, which will feature the presence of Jesús Carrasco, Elvira Lindo, Rosa Montero and Julio Llamazares. The general director of Culture of Marbella, Carmen Díaz, today presented the activity, which is being held for the third year in the municipality to commemorate Library Day, and explained that “the author Jesús Marchamalo will dialogue with each of the guests , going through their book collection with them, how they live with it and how they have
been creating over the years because those readings are, in some way, the germ of his own work”´.
Díaz has specified that “this new edition will take place in two sessions, on Wednesday the 26th and Thursday the 27th Jesús Carrasco and Elvira Lindo will visit us, and on November 23 and 24 it will be the turn of Rosa Montero and Jesús Llamazares, respectively”, and has highlighted that “there are four great names of contemporary Spanish literature.” He has recalled that Jesús Carrasco dazzled critics and readers in 2013 with his first novel, ‘Intemperie’, translated into more than twenty languages
and made into a film in 2019 by Benito Zambrano, while Elvira Lindo, recognized with the National Prize for Children’s and Youth Literature and author of novels such as ‘What remains for me to live’, ‘The other neighborhood’ or ‘A heart open’ , is also known as a columnist, broadcaster,
screenwriter and occasional film actress. The journalist and writer Rosa Montero has also received various awards, such as the National Prize for Letters, and she has published more than fifteen books. Lastly, Julio Llamazares, whose literary activity began with poetry, gained renown with the novel ‘Luna de lobos’ and, later, with ‘The yellow rain’, both finalists for the National Literature Prize.
