Book Launch: Death in Spring


Institute Ramon Llull would like to invite you to the launch event for Mercè Rodoreda’s Death in Spring on Tuesday, 29 May from 7.30-9.30pm at the Tate Modern in London.

Death in Spring (translated by Martha Tennent and Introduction by Colm Tóibín) was published by world-renowned Penguin on 5 April 2018. Institute Ramon Llull have collaborated in this project.


Death in Spring's book launch at the Tate Modern in London promises to be an unmissable evening. The event will feature Colm Tóibín, Najat El Hachmi, poetry from Joe Dunthorne and Will Burns and a live performance by Ana da Silva of the legendary proto-feminist art-punk band The Raincoats.

Colm Tóibin, writer of the Introduction for Death in Spring as published by Penguin, will be reading fragments of his Introduction.

Catalan writer Najat El Hachmi will also be discussing the novel with Colm, followed by a Q&A with attendees.

The event will finish with a musical performance by musician Ana da Silva.

The launch event will also be a chance for attendees to discover Five Dials 45 Magazine. Its European issue is focused on Mercè Rodoreda and will be published with support for Institut Ramon Llull.

Please feel free to bring your colleagues along and publicise the event.

We look forward to seeing you there!
