Event Description

Evelio Rosero, one of Colombia’s most prominent novelists and the award-wining author of The Armies, will hold a public conversation with scholars Laura Garcia-Moreno (SFSU) and Juliana Martinez (UCB). Rosero is well known for his keen and bleak renditions of Colombia’s violent reality. His most recent book, La Carroza de Bolívar, presents a polemic reflection on Latin America’s most powerful mythic figure, Simón Bolívar.
