The Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus from Menorca come to Madrid thanks to the Cervantes Institute and the Ministry of Culture and Sport to present the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus project to the public in Madrid and to open a dialogue on the “conspiracy of silence”, one of Camus’ fundamental reflections.
This Camusian day will begin at 12:30 pm with the participation of José Manuel Rodríguez Uribes, Minister of Culture and Sport; Luis García Montero, Director of the Cervantes Institute; Carol Marquès, Mayoress of Sant Lluís and Sandra Maunac, Director of the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus of Menorca.
The activities of this day will last until 8.30 p.m. and will consist of different conversations between the journalists Edwy Plenel, Jesús Maraña and Joumana Haddad; the poet Elena Medel, and the philosophers Marina Garcès, Hocine Rahli, Sami Naïr and Javier de Lucas.
Nine hours and seventy voices. That is what it took to hold a marathon reading in Sant Lluís to recite all 366 pages of The First Man, a novel by Albert Camus, the work with autobiographical elements in which his Menorcan roots are best reflected.
The event, part of the Sant Jordi celebrations, was organised by the Sant Lluís Town Council and the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus, in collaboration with the Xarxa de Biblioteques de Menorca, the Ateneu de Maó and the Cercle Artístic de Ciutadella.
Presentation of the Trobades & Premis Mediterranis Albert Camus from Menorca at the Ateneu of Maó with the participation of Sandra Maunac director of the project and Carlos Domínguez coordinator as well as a conference by Miguel Ángel Moratinos, promoter of the project.
