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) 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, 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. 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. 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.
