Award-winning novelist and essayist Valeria Luiselli will speak about her most recent novel, which was a finalist for the 2019 Kirkus Prize for Fiction and longlisted for the 2019 Booker Prize, and has been named a best book of 2019 by Entertainment Weekly, Vanity Fair, Vulture and Time. The novel re-imagines the classic road trip novel as an urgent examination of the immigration crisis of the US Southern Border. Luiselli’s inventive and compelling novel blends perspectives, literary forms, photographs, news reports and sounds to follow the paths that this unforgettable novel takes to the heart of the most urgent and timely questions of national identity and social justice. Book signing to follow.
