A series of literary events are planned to take place this season at Hotel Belmond La Residencia, including a workshop led by author Allegra Huston whose memoir recounts her childhood and adolescence in the shadow of her father John Huston and her sister Anjelica. Music concerts and art exhibitions will follow.
Based in New Mexico, Allegra Huston is the author of Love Child: A Memoir of Family Lost and Found, which details her discovery, aged 12, that film director Huston was not her biological father, but rather an English Lord, Viscount John Julius Norwich. Huston has also written a short film and several screenplays, and conducts writing workshops around the world.
The creative workshop will take place from Sunday, the 22nd to Friday, the 27th of October and will start with a welcome afternoon tea and an introduction to the course by Allegra, followed by a walk and talk around Deià with Dr. Jacqueline Waldren an anthropologist and long-time resident of the village.
On Monday, the 23rd of October the course begins with five morning workshops, exploring and developing the students’ memoir writing. Moreover, Allegra has agreed to incorporate two one on one tutorials with each participant. Afternoons are free for writing and the pleasures of Deià. The workshop culminates with a farewell gala dinner in Belmond La Residencia’s El Olivo restaurant, and readings from students’ work.
A soirée open to the public is planned for the evening of Wednesday, the 25th of October when Allegra will read from both her memoir Love Child and her new novel Say My Name.
The fee for the workshop is 1,650 Euros. Attendees who book accommodation at Belmond La Residencia will be offered a 20% discount on room rate for the duration of the workshop. The workshop is limited to 10 pupils.
