Events: talking the Don at the Instituto Cervantes
SelfMadeHero tell us they are taking part in this year’s El Dia E. (Spanish Day) celebrations, and in the highly appropriate location of the Instituto Cervantes in London as it happens, since their contribution will see the excellent Rob Davis talking to a good chum of the blog, interviewer extraordinaire Alex Fitch, discussing his recently completed and frankly magnificent two volume graphic adaptation of that great classic of Spanish (and world) literature, Cervantes’ immortal Don Quixote. The event is scheduled for 4pm on June 22nd, and to go along with it the Instituto Cervantes will be holding an exhibition of original artwork from Rob’s comics adaptation of the dreaming knight which runs from the 18th of June to the 28th. Fingers crossed Alex will be recording this as he normally does so those of us who can’t be there can still get to hear it later. You can read a fascinating Director’s Commentary guest post on Quixote by Rob here on the blog.
