Como parte de nuestra programación virtual ofrecemos 15 minutos de lectura con la Feria del Libro de Miami\, un espacio quincenal donde distintos autores compartirán su obra\, leída de viva voz por Facebook Live. \nAcompáñanos el miércoles 30 de junio a las 5 p.m. con el escritor español José Ovejero. \nEn cada sesión de “15 minutos de lectura”\, un escritor invitado lee sus obras en directo.

Su primera publicación fue un libro de poemas narrativos sobre Henry Morton Stanley. Luego vienen un ensayo sobre Bruselas\, un libro de cuentos y una novela. Esas cuatro publicaciones marcan lo que va a ser un rasgo de su trabajo: la exploración de los distintos géneros. Desde entonces ha publicado novelas\, libros de cuentos\, poesía\, teatro\, libros de viajes y ensayos. Sus libros han recibido diversos premios\, y quizá los mejores años en este sentido hayan sido el 2012 y el 2013. El ensayo “La ética de la crueldad” obtuvo en esos años el Premio Anagrama\, el Premio Bento Spinoza y el premio Estado Crítico; y la novela La invención del amor recibió en 2013 el Premio Alfaguara.

Once you make your purchase\, we will send you a private link to access the event. See below for detailed information on tickets.\n\nNamed a best book of 2020 by The New York Times\, The Washington Post\, TIME\, The Guardian\, and many more \n\n\n\n\n“If you cannot speak truth at a beheading\, when can you speak it?”\nEngland\, May 1536. Anne Boleyn is dead\, decapitated in the space of a heartbeat by a hired French executioner. As her remains are bundled into oblivion\, Thomas Cromwell breakfasts with the victors. The blacksmith’s son from Putney emerges from the spring’s bloodbath to continue his climb to power and wealth\, while his formidable master\, Henry VIII\, settles to short-lived happiness with his third queen before Jane dies giving birth to the male heir he most craves. \nCromwell is a man with only his wits to rely on; he has no great family to back him\, no private army. Despite rebellion at home\, traitors plotting abroad and the threat of invasion testing Henry’s regime to the breaking point\, Cromwell’s robust imagination sees a new country in the mirror of the future. But can a nation\, or a person\, shed the past like a skin? Do the dead continually unbury themselves? What will you do\, the Spanish ambassador asks Cromwell\, when the king turns on you\, as sooner or later he turns on everyone close to him? \nWith The Mirror & the Light\, Hilary Mantel brings to a triumphant close the trilogy she began with Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies. She traces the final years of Thomas Cromwell\, the boy from nowhere who climbs to the heights of power\, offering a defining portrait of predator and prey\, of a ferocious contest between present and past\, between royal will and a common man’s vision: of a modern nation making itself through conflict\, passion\, and courage. \nHilary Mantel\, a two-time winner of the Man Booker Prize\, is the author of the bestselling Wolf Hall Trilogy. The trilogy’s novels—Wolf Hall\, Bring Up the Bodies\, and The Mirror & the Light—have been translated into thirty-seven languages\, and their sales have reached over six million copies worldwide. She is the author of sixteen books\, including A Place of Greater Safety\, the memoir Giving Up the Ghost\, and the short-story collection The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher. \nModerated by: Nancy Goldstone \nAll books will be shipped AFTER the event.\nWhen completing your order\, please make sure that you include your complete shipping address and phone number.\nPlease note: Due to the pandemic the post office is being challenged by increased volume\, staffing issues\, and safety measures.
