You Dreamed of Empires w/ Álvaro Enrigue
Join moderator, Gerardo Sámano Córdova in conversation with Álvaro Enrigue, author of You Dreamed of Empires, a story of a collision of two worlds, two empires, two languages, two possible futures. You Dreamed of Empires brings to life a moment in history and reimagines what happens next. Considered “an offbeat, well-turned riff on anti-colonialist themes,” this new novel by Álvaro Enrigue turns a moment of conquest into one of revolution, a restitutive, fantastical counter- attack, in an electric novel that almost feels like a dream. Copies of You Dreamed of Empires will be available for purchase and will be signed by the author at the event.
