Last Thursday I made a presentation of my book at a place that is both a restaurant and a live jazz local. The translator of my novel, author Caroline Roe, presented with me.
I chose The Annex Live because it not only has a stage but is also at the core of the Annex district in Toronto. The Annex is the district where Anna, the main character of Beyond the Dream, lives. And I happen to live there too.
First I read in Catalan from the original novel Més enllà del somni.
Then, Caroline Roe read a passage from Beyond the Dream (the English version).
I spent the remaining two hours answering questions from the audience about my novel. A few of the people had already read the book, therefore they wanted tips about the following books. The rest of the audience were very eager to know about the process of writing the novel.
There was a very good interaction between the audience and myself. I had a great time!
