María Sánchez in Conversation with José An. Montero Tuesday 19th OCT | 5 pm UK | In Spanish | online
Writer and veterinarian María Sánchez works with indigenous breeds in danger of extinction.

With Almáciga, as with Cuaderno de Campo and Tierra de Mujeres, an essay that vindicates the role of women in rural areas, María was on literary covers and podiums. Sponsored by Instituto Cervantes de Londres and The European Bookshop
Hosted and curated by Cecilia Szperling with Marie Arbelo, Lili Brik Levi, Silvia Demetilla, María Isabel Eliash O’shee, Nicolás Pili, Nati Romero, Paloma Rubin, Carla Tofano and Luis Edoardo Torres. Order now
