Latin American Short Stories Reading Group – Black History Month Special Edition

February 14, 2023 @ 6:30 pm

Are you interested in short stories written by Latin American authors?

We’re pleased to present a special edition of our Latin American Short Stories Reading Group on Tuesday, February 14, at 6:30 pm, at the Conference Room (1661 Napier St, Vancouver).

This month, as part of our series of events honoring Black History Month, we invited one of our regular participants and friends, Arturo Urrutia to facilitate the conversation. Catalina Parra will host the session.

We’ll be discussing the stories “Detour” and “Primal Needs” by Évelyne Trouillot; and “Sunrise, Sunset” by Edwidge Danticat.

As an additional bonus, two interviews with the authors are also included on the link to the stories.

The stories are in English translations. The discussions will also be led in English. No background in Latin American literature or culture is required. This is a free event, but registrations are necessary. Please get your tickets here.

When: Tuesday, February 14 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm
