Vanessa Monfort presents 'The Legend of the Voiceless Island' in Madrid with gospel
Vanessa Monfort presents "The Legend of the Voiceless Island" in Madrid with gospel

Vanessa Monfort, prolific playwright whose texts have been included in many anthologies, published last February La leyenda de la ciudad sin voz (The Legend of the Voiceless Island) (Plaza y Janés), her third novel, after The Secret Ingredient (2006) and Mythology of New York (2010), both in Algaida. The book, starring Charles Dickens as he visits Blackwell Island (in which there was an asylum, a prison, a nursing home and an orphanage), is a story of love, friendship and mistery that is as passionate as it is engaging. Its presentation in Ámbito Cultural of El Corte Inglés Callao (Madrid) was surprising and unforgettable: in it, an unexpected gospel group, hidden among the audience, played "Amazing Grace" just after Vanessa read a fragment of the novel that mentioned the song. You can see this moment here; we hope it encourages you to discover the wonders of a memorable book.
