Eleven players of the champion team participated in the Reading Club on the novel “The city of rain”
TAfter a fraternal meal in which they have revived the glorious years in which they conquered two leagues, a cup and a supercup, eleven of those red and white heroes have gathered in the Reading Club of the Foral Library to talk about the book written by Alfonso del Río. The novel, entitled “The city of rain”, is set in part in Bilbao in the early 80’s, specifically 1983, when the terrible floods came together with a legendary Athletic Club. In short, it was the perfect opportunity for the Foundation to organize an Athletic Reading Club with the legends of that memorable team./p>
