Two new English-Catalan books have been published recently and this month there will be readings from them both at venues in Barcelona.
First up is Big Magic (Gran Màgia), a magical book aimed at six to eight year olds, written by British author Georgina Tremayne and translated into Catalan by Sylvia Serratosa. The adventures of the mysterious protagonist Anna are illustrated by Cristina Caupena and you can hear about some of Anna's exploits at the February 3rd reading at Corte Inglés in Portal del Angel.
The second book is the second volume in the 'All Angles' series, Souvenir, featuring original short stories written by Catalunya-based authors and published in parallel English and Catalan texts. Find the details of that reading here.
