Written from afar
Fernando Aramburu and Rosa Ribas will reflect on how living in Germany has influenced their writing.
Fernando Aramburu and Rosa Ribas are Spanish writers living in Germany for different reasons. Aramburu’s book Homeland became instantly a national and international success because of the way it describes the atmosphere of a small village in the Basque country during the existence of the Spanish terrorist group ETA. Rosa Ribas has created Inspector Cornelia Weber-Tejedor, half German, half Spanish, working for the Frankfurt police department and moving between two cultures to solve crimes.
Does living outside Spain provide them with more perspective to deal with national issues? What is the influence of Germany in their books and in their lives? What is their creative process, do they write with a reader in mind? These are some of the questions we will discuss with the authors.
