Brought to the valley by the Sun Valley Writers’ Conference, in collaboration with The Community Library, award-winning author, speaker, actor, and educator Pablo Cartaya will be sharing stories about family, community, and culture, and how the intersections of identity have made their way into his life and stories. Using his acting experience, bilingualism, and his novels as a springboard for discussion, Pablo will engage in a lively talk filled with humor, heart, and voice. Pablo Cartaya received a Pura Belpré Honor for his critically acclaimed debut novel, The Epic Fail of Arturo Zamora. NBC News lauded his sophomore novel, Marcus Vega Doesn’t Speak Spanish, as “exceptional” and The New York Times Book Review called it “a love song to the people of Puerto Rico.” Marcus Vega Doesn’t Speak Spanish is currently in development for a feature film and his most recent novel, Each Tiny Spark, was described as a “layered, culturally rich novel” by Publishers Weekly in a starred review. His novels explore identity, place, and the spaces in between. Pablo is proudly bilingual en Español y Ingles. For more information, please visit svwc.com or comlib.org
