I'm very happy to be involved with Manchester Literature Festival for a third year. My first event was hearing Kirmen Uribe and Jesús Carrasco read at the Instituto Cervantes.
Kirmen writes in Basque and Jesús in Castilian, so for me as a linguist it was a fascinating experience.
I hope you enjoy my account of the event, which has been published on the Festival's Chapter and Verse blog.
