On Wednesday, September 11 at 5:30 pm in DeNaples 405, we will kick off our Fall 2019 Humanities Forum with one of the foremost writers in the Spanish language and the recent winner of the Shirley Jackson Prize for her novel, The Taiga Syndrome, Cristina Rivera Garza. Garza’s talk will explore the deportation of her grandparents in the 1930s through the remains of their domestic objects — dishes, clothing, and furniture. The talk will be in English.
