BCNegra 2016: Roundtables and talks at BARTS

  • Things to do

Time Out says

BARTS plays host to four BCNegra events, starting at 4pm with a roundtable on banks and secret services with Sergio Salgado, a member of Xnet, which works to fight against corruption; and Albert Villaró, writer, archivist and archaeologist. At 5pm there's a new roundtable with three writers who have recently published new novels: José Luis Correa, writer and university professor; Ernesto Mallo, writer, playwright, journalist and director of Buenos Aires Negro; and writer Mikel Santiago. At 6.30pm Paco Camaraso, the commissioner of BCNegra, talks about the character Martin Beck, a detective created by Swedish writers Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. At 7.30pm the day comes to an end with a conversation about Venice with Donna Leon, who wasn't born there (she's from New Jersey) but has lived in the Italian city for over 25 years and has guided readers along its streets and canals thousands of times through her hero Commissario Guido Brunetti.
