On April 23, Saint Jordi’s Day, Catalonians offer books and flowers to loved ones in honor of Barcelona’s patron saint. In a New York version of this tradition, Jordi Puntí and Colm Tóibín pay tribute to the great Catalan writer Josep Pla, whose books include The Gray Notebook and Life Embitters. Puntì and Tóibín will discuss Pla’s life, work, and enduring influence on Catalan and Spanish literature.
