Jordi Sierra i Fabra

Jordi Sierra i Fabra

Jordi Sierra i Fabra was born in 1947 in Barcelona. He was the only child of a very humble family and he stumbled with many obstacles that made it difficult to fulfill his dream of becoming a writer, one of them was his father’s disapproval. His link to the world of rock and roll (he directed and founded some of the most important Spanish magazines related to rock in the 60s and 70s) made him very popular, but he never abandoned his true desire: writing the stories that his volcanic mind invented. He published his first book in 1972. Since then, he has written more than five hundred works, many of them bestsellers, he has won forty literary prizes; likewise, he has received tons of honorary mentions and has appeared in many honor lists. His works have been translated to more than thirty different languages. In 2006 and 2010 he was candidate for Spain for the Nobel prize for children’s literature, the Hans Christian Andersen Award, and in 2020 he will be candidate for the third time. He has also been candidate two times for the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award and one time on behalf of his Foundation. In 2007 he was awarded the National Literature Award of the Spanish Ministry of Culture, in 2012 the Young Cervantes and in 2013 the Ibero-American award for his works and the social work carried out by his foundations. In 2017 he was awarded the Gold Medal of Merit in the Fine Arts and the Creu de Sant Jordi in 2018. In 2017 he had sold more than 12 million copies.

A restless, romantic and passionate traveler, he considers himself to be an utopic possibilist and a lover of the written word and of freedom.In 2004 he created Fundació Jordi Sierra I Fabra in Barcelona and the Fundación Taller de Letras Jordi Sierra i Fabra in Medellín, Colombia, as culmination of his career and his ethic and social commitment. Since then, a prize with his name is awarded every year to young writers under 18 and an online literary magazine is published to help future writers (www.lapaginaescrita.com). Both foundations were awarded the IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award, the most important worldwide. In 2015 he was awarded the Medal of Honor of Barcelona.
