Julieta Venegas

The Mexican singer-songwriter Julieta Venegas, who has sold over twelve million records worldwide, but there’s nothing she likes better than holing up with a book under an angle poise in her bedroom. Her photographer parents didn’t let her turn on the television and signed her up at an early age for painting and ballet classes, and she learned classical piano, cello and musical theory, though she soon started listening to Suzanne Vega and David Bowie. And, above all, becoming an intuitive self-taught reader: she started with romantic novels by Corín Tellado, to then see herself reflected in the pages of Jane Eyre. She now lives in Argentina and will be sharing her passion for reading at Primera Persona in the form of recitals and live songs.
