Glasgow launch: Catalonia Reborn by Chris Bambery and George Kerevan

  • Waterstones Byres Road 351-355 Byres Road Glasgow, Scotland, G12 8QZ United Kingdom (map)

Former SNP MP George Kerevan and TV producer and political journalist Chris Bambery launch their new book Catalonia Reborn: How Catalonia Took On the Corrupt Spanish State and the Legacy of Franco at Waterstones Byres Road. 

October 2017 saw Catalonia come under the world's spotlight as it again fought for independence and the preservation of its unique Catalan culture. Since then, the topic has stormed our news headlines, with the no-confidence vote that unseated Mariano Rajoy to the withdrawal of the trial against St Andrews professor Clara Ponsatí. 

Detangling the complications behind the fight for independence, Kerevan and Bambery use the past - the rich history of Catalonia's language, culture and political background - to explain the present, covering defining eras of the region from Franco's dictatorship to the 2017 independence referendum and elections.

Admission to this event is free and all are welcome. Booking your free ticket is advised to avoid disappointment, please visit the Waterstones Byres Road events page.
