Eduard Márquez at IFOA 2017

Spanish author Eduard Márquez participates in the sessions “Relate and Reflect” and “Around the World” at this year’s Toronto’s International Festival of Authors.

Since its inception in 1974, Toronto’s International Festival of Authors has welcomed more than 9,000 authors from over 100 countries, including 22 Nobel Laureates and countless other award winners.

Eduard Márquez, who lives in Barcelona, published two books of poetry in Spanish before writing Zugzwang, his first work in Catalan. He has continued writing in Catalan, publishing another collection of short fiction, twelve children’s books, and four novels. His work has been translated into German, Italian, Spanish, and Turkish. He presents Brandes’ Decision.
