THE UA LITERATURE CLUB RESTARTS THE SERIES OF READINGS OF EL PAÍS NEWSPAPER

From 31 October, the UA Literature Club restarts the cycle entitled “Escriure El País”, which is organised by the Department of Catalan Studies, the Faculty of Arts, the Office of the Vice President for Culture, Sports and Language Policies of the University of Alicante, the Research Institute for Gender Studies and El País newspaper. Writers Núria Cadenas, Carles Alberola and Joan Olivares will attend the series of readings.

Through literary writing, the initiative aims to demonstrate the importance of our traditions and landscape, which encompasses the culture of our region. For this purpose, the authors invited to the cycle will write a story (autobiographical or fictional) and then they will read it to the audience. The key element of the readings is for the audience to discuss their own interpretation of the story with the writer. Eventually, the story will be published in the online Quadern edition of El País newspaper.
