Jorge Galán and Mark Dowd: November

Jorge Galán’s extraordinary non-fiction novel Noviembre, now published in an English translation by Jason Wilson as November, recounts the horrifying murder of six Jesuit priests and two women during the Salvadorian civil war in 1989, dealing both with its aftermath and the complex political situation from which the atrocity arose. Its original publication in Spanish led to death threats against the author which forced Galán to flee his native country.

Galán was in conversation with journalist Mark Dowd who has written widely and produced several documentaries on the relationship between religion and human rights.

This event was made possible by the generous support of Instituto Cervantes.
