omorrow, November 15th at 07:00 pm in San Mames, Literature and Football 2018 organises a meeting with the prestigious French author Philippe Claudel.

The writer and film director Philippe Claudel is one of the most interesting European artists of the 21st century, capable of delving into the essential aspects of human life through fiction. The writer and French literature expert Rosa de Diego will read several fragments of his works and discuss them with Claudel from a new and suggestive point of view, in such a way that they will establish connections to football and Athletic Club.

The meeting will take place in the North Corner Room of San Mames VIP Area, entrance through Gate 7. Attendance is free until full seating capacity.

Literature and Football 2018 is organised by the Athletic Club Foundation and the Regional Library of Bizkaia and is mainly sponsored by the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, Euskaltel and the Reading Observatory of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. It also has the collaboration of Meliá Hotel and BCD Travel. The Athletic Club Foundation would like to thank to the sponsors for their invaluable support.

Philippe Claudel is one of the most renowned French authors today, with works such as Monsieur Linh and His Child (2005), Brodeck report (2007) or L’Arbre du pays Toraja (2016), which have been acclaimed by the public and critics. He has received numerous awards for his career and others, including the Goncourt de Novela Prize and the Renaudot Prize. As a filmmaker, he also received the Cesar for Best Debut Film and the BAFTA for Best Non-English Film for I´ve Love you so long (2008).

Philippe was born in 1962 in Dombasle sur Meurthe, where he still lives today. He loved football since he was a child, but football never loved him. At the age of nine, he joined his hometown club and scored many goals during the first season, albeit against his own goal, which prompted the coach to keep him on the bench for the rest of the year, allowing him to play from time to time a few seconds before the final whistle.

He never played a second season. Philippe Claudel definitely kept his boots in a closet and, from then on, only maintained a passionate television relationship with football. During his adolescence, he vibrated with the exploits of AS Saint-Etienne in the European Cup and he get excited during the famous France-Germany match in Seville. George Best, Socrates, Johann Cruyff and Eric Cantona are still his favourite players.
