New York City's Mexican Cultural Institute & New York University's King Juan Carlos of Spain Center--- September 12th
Save the date! This September 12th, as part of the Celebrate Mexico Now Festival, the Mexican Cultural Institute of New York and NYU's King Juan Carlos I of Spain Center will host the presentation of my anthology of Mexican fiction and literary prose, Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion. I am delighted that, accompanying me will be some of the translators--- Harry Morales and Daniel Shapiro--- as well as Mexican writers Monica Lavin and Pedro Angel Palou. Click here for the info about the event, which is free and open to the public, so if you're in town, consider yourself invited! And click here to hear my interview with John Ydsie of National Public Radio about the book and to read some stories--- including Monica Lavin's stunningly good short story, "Day and Night." More anon.
