2014 Junot Díaz-Public Reading and Book Signing
Tuesday, April 8, 2014
at Buskirk-Chumley Theater
114 E. Kirkwood Ave.
This event is free, but requires a ticket.
Join us for a public reading and book-signing by bestselling author Junot Díaz.
Deemed a “literary lion” by The New York Times, Díaz is the author of two collections of short stories (Drown  and This is How You Lose Her ), as well as a novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (2007), which won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. In 2012, he was awarded a MacArthur “genius grant.”
Díaz is headlining a workshop on “Science Fiction in the Americas,” which will be held on April 8 and which is being organized by the Department of American Studies and the Latino Studies Program of Indiana University Bloomington. Díaz is currently working on a science fiction novel set in Haiti and the Dominican Republic that was excerpted in the New Yorker’s 2012 science fiction issue—its first issue ever to focus on this popular genre.
