Join us to welcome Spanish author Irene Solá in conversation with Jesús Urda, professor of Spanish and film studies at the TU Dublin.

We will dive into her novel "I sing and the mountain dances" ("Yo canto y la montaña baila").

"First comes the storm and the lightning and the death of Domènec, the peasant poet. Then, Dolceta, who can't stop laughing as she tells the stories of the four women who were hanged for witches. Sió, who has to raise herself to Mia and Hilari up there in Matavaques. And the trumpets of the dead, who, with their black and appetizing hat, announce the immutability of the cycle of life".

Primero llegan la tormenta y el rayo y la muerte de Domènec, el campesino poeta. Luego, Dolceta, que no puede parar de reír mientras cuenta las historias de las cuatro mujeres a las que colgaron por brujas. Sió, que tiene que criar sola a Mia e Hilari ahí arriba en Matavaques. Y las trompetas de los muertos, que, con su sombrero negro y apetitoso, anuncian la inmutabilidad del ciclo de la vida".
