EXHIBITION “MIGUEL DELIBES, IN DEFENSE OF NATURE AND THE RURAL WORLD”

On September 24, Friday, starting at 11:00 a.m. there will be a public reading of texts from the works of one of our most outstanding writers in the history of our literature, Miguel Delibes. This reading will be part of the opening of the exhibition «Miguel Delibes: in defense of nature and the rural world» coinciding with the centenary of his birth last year, and which will be exhibited at the fair NATURCYL. The first text will be read by Miguel Delibes de Castro, son of the writer and Godfather of Honor of NATURCYL 2021.

From September 24 to 26, the IV edition of the NATURCYL 2021 International Ecotourism Fair will take place. In addition to the almost one hundred exhibitors who will promote their tourist destinations and services or their optical and gastronomy products, NATURCYL will have an extensive program of activities. Throughout the three days there will be presentations, workshops, exhibitions, tastings, field trips and film screenings. And one of the most outstanding is the exhibition on the Castilian writer with photographs and texts of his life.

Miguel Delibes Setién was born in Valladolid in 1920. Spanish novelist.

Doctor of Law and professor of History of Commerce; journalist and, for years, director of the newspaper El Norte de Castilla.

His sustained and copious work as a novelist reveals a clear fidelity to his surroundings, his city, the Castilian countryside, its people and its nature. His critical vision -which progressively increases as his career progresses- alludes above all to the excesses and violence of urban life, and the destruction of the rural world.

Considered one of the main referents of literature in the Spanish language, throughout his career he obtained the most outstanding distinctions in the literary field: the Nadal Prize (1948), the Critics' Prize (1953), the Prince of Asturias (1982 ), the National Prize for Spanish Letters (1991) and the Cervantes Prize (1993), among others.

This exhibition has been created and financed by the Natural Heritage Foundation of Castilla y León.
