The Dinner Guest: a reading by Gabriela Ybarra
15 May 2018 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm|
To celebrate the brilliant up and coming Spanish writer Gabriela Ybarra, whose debut novel, The Dinner Guest has been long-listed for the Man Booker Prize, La Libreria is hosting a reading by the author on May 15th.
Innovative in its style and structure, Gabriella Ybarra’s ‘free re-construction’ of real-life events plays with notions of fiction and non-fiction, public and private. It connects two life-changing events – the very public death of Ybarra’s grandfather, and the very private and intimate experience of caring for her mother as she lost her battle with cancer.
Devastating yet luminous, The Dinner Guest marks the arrival of a talented new voice and Liberia is delighted to welcome Gabriella to launch her debut.
A bookshop by Second Home, every aspect of Libreria is designed to help you discover new books and ideas, and encourage interdisciplinary thinking.
