      EVENT DETAILS
      Spanish Book Club (January) - with Tapas and Wine

      Join our Spanish Book Club once a month, where we discuss contemporary and classic books in Spanish, whilst enjoying delicious food and drink from the author's country of birth. The book for January is the critically acclaimed novel, De amor y de Sombra, by the celebrated Chilean novelist, Isabel Allende. WHAT'S INCLUDED: The participation fee includes a copy of the book, tapas, and a session co-ordinated by our experienced tutor, Luis. The book club is held by the school, Spanish Marks, and all proceeds are going to the charity, Asocaicion Fatima based in Guatemala. The maximum number of participants is 12, so we recommend to book today as there is great demand! EVENT DESCRIPTION: We have a relaxed atmosphere, with most of the discussion in Spanish. It is an event for those who love literature and Spanish, and want to spend an evening discussing the chosen book, whilst enjoying light bites and a glass of wine. It is not a language lesson, but an informal discussion about the book and it's themes, allowing you to practice Spanish in a warm, friendly and culturally-rich setting! Receive a copy of De amor y de Sombra when you purchase a ticket, so you can read it in advance. Buy before 15th October, to receive free delivery of the book. Tickets bought after this date will need to collect the book from Hotel Strand Continental, 143 Strand, WC2R 1JA. ABOUT 'DE AMOR Y DE SOMBRA' AND LEVEL OF SPANISH: De Amor y de Sombra is a fascinating story of bravery and sacrifice, of family loyalty and state treason. The second novel by celebrated author, Isabel Allende, tells the passionate relationship of two people willing to risk everything for the sake of justice and truth. It was taken to the cinema in 1994 with Antonio Banderas and Jennifer Connelly as protagonists. Irene is a magazine editor living under the shadow of the Pinochet dictatorship in Chile. Francisco is a handsome photographer and he comes to Irene for a job. As a sympathizer with the underground resistance movement, Francisco opens Irene's eyes and her heart to the atrocities being committed by the state. Irene and Francisco begin a passionate affair, ready to risk everything for the sake of justice and truth. We recommend you to attend this event if you have intermediate or above level of Spanish. All discussion will be in Spanish. FUTURE EVENTS: The book club is held once a month, with a different book each month. We change the country, theme and style of literature, and always choose highly acclaimed books by great authors. ¡Esperamos verte pronto!
