2017 saw Catalonia come under the world's spotlight as it again fought for independence and the preservation and protection of its unique Catalan culture. Chris Bambery and George Kerevan seek to answer the questions and complications behind the fight for independence in their new book Catalonia Reborn: How Catalonia Took on the Corrupt Spanish State and the Legacy of Franco.
With a detailed guide to the region's political, historical and cultural issues, Kerevan and Bambery present answers to the questions everyone is asking: why do most people in Catalonia want independence from Spain? What is the history behind Catalonia's struggle for independence? And why has the Spanish government employed such Draconian measures to prevent the possibility of Catalonian independence?
Come along for some clarity and insight into Catalonia's political climate, both past and present, to understand the tumultuous events that were front and centre in the media.
Admission to this event is free and all are welcome.
