Please join us for a great event in Spanish with the famous and well known contemporary Spanish writer Carlos Ruiz ZafÃ³n.
Barcelona-born, LA-based author Carlos Ruiz Zafón writes fantastical literary thrillers packed with intrigue and adventure – with books themselves at their very centre.
His admirers include Stephen King and Margaret Atwood. The Shadow of the Wind, which sold more than 15 million copies worldwide, was the first in a quartet for younger readers that take its inspiration from sources as disparate as Enid Blyton and Alexander Dumas.
His stories set in Barcelona’s (fictional) Cemetery of Forgotten Books have ‘theblissful narrative drive of a high-class mystery’.
The Watcher in the Shadows, the third in the series, has just been released – to great anticipation. Ruiz Zafón will be in conversation with Sian Prior and Dr. Lily Thwaites, Honorary Research Associate, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, School and European Studies, LaTrobe University.
