Latin American Literature at the End of the World

October 16, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT

When we read or write fiction, we create parallel worlds. As such, possibility is not only a question of genre or believability on the page, but also one of language: what if?

This is especially true of Latin American fiction, in which the relationship between the past and the future, the real and the unreal is often blurred beyond recognition. Through a short lecture on Latin American literary traditions and a craft discussion on the otherworldly, this presentation will explore these relationships. A Q & A will follow.
