Performance: "A Public Reading with Pulitzer Prize-winning Author Junot Díaz"

Mon, September 23, 2013 | Auditorium, Blanton Museum of Art

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The 2013-2014 edition of TILTS, "Reading Race in Literature & Film," brings together scholars, artists, filmmakers, and writers for conversations about the ways that we experience race and ethnicity. Featuring prose that is “irresistible” and “exhilarating,” Díaz's fiction is at the forefront of contemporary narratives of this kind. His work illuminates the identities, relationships, and ambitions of the Dominican and Dominican American characters at the center of his stories. Díaz will read a selection from his critically acclaimed texts, with a Q&A session and reception to follow.
