A Tribute to Carlos Ruiz Zafón
September 4, 2020
Episode ten of History and Literary Arts’ popular new podcast, “La Hilacha,” is a tribute to Carlos Ruiz Zafón, one of the world’s most popular Spanish writers, who died this past June at the age of 55. Ruiz Zafón’s works have been published in more than 40 countries and translated into more than 30 languages. Upon Ruiz Zafon’s passing Pedro Sánchez, the Spanish prime minister, tweeted: “We have lost one of the world’s most read and most admired Spanish writers. Carlos Ruiz Zafón, a key novelist of our epoch, made a significant contribution to modern literature.”
“La Hilacha: Words and Memories” is the title of this new NHCC podcast because we understand history and literature as an unraveling thread, from the richness of our individual and collective stories into the writing that tells these stories to the world. New episodes of the podcast appear every three weeks.
