Elizabeth Duval at DC’s Lost City Books

Spanish writer Elizabeth Duval visits DC to present her works “Reina” and “Madrid Will Be Their Tomb.”

Join the author at Lost City Books for a reading and discussion. She will explore two of her works: Reina, the first memoir in Spain by a woman from Generation Z, already a notable figure for poetry and activism at 19 years old, and Madrid Will Be Their Tomb, depicting two characters from opposing political groups whose paths intersect, leading to life-changing impacts.
