Sant Jordi celebrations and bookshops battling online giants
Sant Jordi (Saint George) is the patron saint of Catalonia. His feast day, April 23, is a celebration of love, roses and romance, but books and literature too. Lorcan Doherty is joined by Guifré Jordan and Angus Clelland to chat about what makes this day so special for Catalans and how independent book stores in Barcelona are trying to survive and thrive in the digital age. This week's Catalan phrase is 'ploure a bots i barrals'. The English equivalent would be 'raining cats and dogs'.
