Latin America Short Stories Reading Group | February
February 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
VLACC is pleased to present, in partnership with UBC’s Latin American Studies program, a reading group open to anyone interested in short stories written by Latin American authors.
On February 9th, Dr. Alessandra Santos, Associate Professor of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of British Columbia, will present and facilitate a discussion about stories by authors João Guimarães Rosa and Milton Hatoum.
The reading group is a fun interactive event where everyone is invited to contribute their opinions. It includes a 5-minute breakout room activity where attendants are paired to discuss a question related to the evening’s theme.
The stories are English translations and discussions will also be led in English. No background in Latin American literature or culture required. Please direct any questions to Danais Yera at firstname.lastname@example.org
