The Spanish edition of Finding Moonshine was published this week by Acantilado.
I was in Spain this week promoting the book. I gave a talk in Madrid at the prestigious Residencia de Estudiantes, home to Dali, Lorca and Bunuel. Other people who have lectured there include Albert Einstein, Paul Valéry, Marie Curie, Igor Stravinsky, John M. Keynes, Alexander Calder, Walter Gropius, Henri Bergson and Le Corbusier.
I also gave a talk in Barcelona at the CosmaCaixa museum. It is a fantastic science museum and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona.
Here are some reviews that have appeared in Spain:
