Bécquer Seguín: Spanish Novelists as Public Intellectuals

Thursday, February 29 at 4:45pm to 6:00pm

Spanish House (La Casa Hispanica; Harvey House)
96 South Professor Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Bécquer Seguín´s new book, The Op-Ed Novel: A Literary History of Post-Franco Spain (Harvard UP), tells the story of how five Spanish novelists changed contemporary fiction through their opinion columns. It's about how literature and politics--and fiction and nonfiction--blend together.

Bécquer Seguín is Assistant Professor of Iberian Studies at Johns Hopkins University and a regular contributor to The Nation magazine.
