Thursday March 4, 7pm Pacific Time
Cristina Rivera Garza and Kit Schluter, reading and in conversation
emcee, Carolina de Robertis
Celebrated Mexican novelist, poet, and essayist Cristina Rivera Garza returns to The Poetry Center. She’ll be joined by poet and translator Kit Schluter, living until recently in Mexico City. Three of Rivera Garza’s acclaimed six novels have appeared in the US; and three remarkable books of nonfiction have also been published in translation within the past few months. She and her work were just recognized, in Fall 2020, for the prestigious MacArthur Fellowship. Kit Schluter’s prolific work includes his first full-length collection of poetry, Pierrot’s Fingernails (Canarium Books, 2020), and translations of Marcel Schwob, Jaime Saenz, Anne Kawala, César Aira, and Etel Adnan, among others. Together, they’ll each read from their own writings, then join in conversation with one another and with novelist Carolina de Robertis as emcee, and respond to questions from the audience.
This remote access event starts promptly at 7:00 pm Pacific Time, and is free and open to the public.
