With the World Cup in Brazil around the corner, please join us for an evening of celebration and discussion, covering all things literary, Latin America and football.
The Football Crónicas showcases fifteen pieces of short-form writing that take football as their starting point (a prison team in Argentina, a transvestite team in Colombia, a kidnapped team in Bolivia...), on a journey to the heart of Latin American society. Proceeds from the book will be donated to The Bottletop Foundation. a UK-based organisation that does outstanding work empowering young people in Brazil.
Jethro Soutar, co-editor and co-translator of The Football Crónicas, will present the book, alongside Peruvian author Diego Trelles Paz, who will read from his short story ‘Football and Plague’. There will then be a Q&A and a book signing will follow.
