Join Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel, the most recognized and internationally translated Equatorial Guinean author in conversation at the London Spanish Book & Zine Fair 2020.  This webinar will be in SPANISH.

Through Juan Tomás Ávila Laurel words we will discover the cultural clash between Spaniards and Guineans that constitutes the essence of his latest work, Cuando a Guinea se iba por mar (2019).

The documentary film ‘El escritor de un país sin librerías’ (The writer of a country without bookstores) by director Marc Serena, narrates Ávila Laurel’s life. Thus we discover a country like Equatorial Guinea in which, even today, children learn at school in Spanish.
