Virtual Author Talk with Valeria Luiselli
Author Valeria Luiselli will discuss her 2017 book, Tell Me How it Ends, An Essay in Forty Questions (Niños Perdidos, Ensayo en Cuarenta Preguntas). The book tackles Luiselli’s experience volunteering at an immigration court in New York City, where she translated the responses migrant children gave to the questions that stood between a return to their home country and the promise of a new life in the United States. She will read from her work and, following an interview with Viridiana Garcia Choy, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, respond to questions from the audience.
Luiselli was born in Mexico City and grew up in South Korea, South Africa, and India. An acclaimed writer of both fiction and nonfiction, and winner of a MacArthur Genius Award, she is the author of the essay collection Sidewalks, as well as the novels Faces in the Crowd, The Story of My Teeth, and Lost Children Archive.
This program, offered in English and Spanish with simultaneous interpretation, is in conjunction with Border Cantos | Sonic Border: Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo, which is on view at the HRM through May 9, 2021.
