A conversation with Alejandro Palomas

The recipient of the 2016 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature discusses his work at CCE Miami.

Alejandro Palomas was born in Barcelona in 1967. He studied English philology and has a Master’s degree in Poetics from the New College of California in San Francisco. He began by translating classic works in English until he crossed over to literature.

He has written novels such as El secreto de los Hoffman and El alma del Mundo, but his greatest success has been in children’s books: Un hijo –the second book in the trilogy Una Madre (A Mother), Un Hijo (A Son) and Un Perro (A Dog)– won the National Children’s and Young Adult’s Literature Award in 2016.
