GARCÍA CARTERON, BEGOÑA
Begoña García Carteron has a degree in Art History and works as a writer, journalist and coordinator of editorial content. As a freelance, she has developed very different tasks in the field of communication and has tried numerous topics. She has written books on art, heritage and gastronomy; articles on culture, travel and ecology and has coordinated projects for various publishers. The passion for her city, Barcelona, has led her to specialize in local culture. She recently coordinated the content of the new website of the City of Barcelona (meet.barcelona.cat) and has written the sections devoted to the history of the city, among others. She writes weekly interviews and “Top Secret” column in the magazine Time Out Barcelona and heads projects such as “Painting BCN” (Publicacions of Barcelona City Council) collection.
She is the author of El Barri del Sorral (Ediciones B), dedicated to women who lived the war of the eighteenth century and fought alone to get their way with dignity in the new neighborhood of Barceloneta. It is her first published novel (not the first one she has written, since she has one in the drawer).
