New Orleans community came out for a book event in celebration of Ecuadorian writer Gabriela Alemán. Alemán is author of Poco Wells and coordinator of the Latin American Writers Series here at the Stone Center. She launched her new book Family Album at 6 PM on the 12th of May!
Family Album was featured in an NPR write up: "Latin American literature in translation: Stories that take you to unexpected places." The piece highlights Latin American translated works. Author Lily Meyer says: "And the Ecuadorian writer and publisher Gabriela Alemán, whose Family Album is by far the most traditionally written of these three books, plays with tropes ranging from the Robinson Crusoe story to the classic betrayed-wife setup to wrestle with the impossible-to-decode oddness of human life, which old stories can only hide for so long."
