Anagrama: Celebrating 40 Years of Independent Publishing in Spain


April 29 | Instituto Cervantes | NYC

With Francisco Goldman, A.M. Homes, Siri Hustvedt, Daniel Sada, and Enrique Vila-Matas; moderated by Jorge Herralde

An anagram is a word or a phrase formed by reordering the letters of another word or phrase. It’s also the name of one of Spain’s most distinguished independent book publishers, which celebrates its 40th birthday this year. We’re marking this milestone with a discussion about the history of the press featuring some of its most distinguished authors and publisher Jorge Herralde.

Cosponsored by Instituto Cervantes and the Consulate General of Spain
