Meiklejohn House Room 102
As part two of the Department of Portuguese and Brazilian Studies’ two-day Primavera Literária, please join us for a lunchtime conversation with writers Carol Bensimon and Paloma Vidal. A light lunch will be served.
Born in Argentina and raised in Brazil, Paloma Vidal has written numerous novels and poetry collections, and her works have been translated into English, French, and Spanish. Carol Bensimon’s works have been translated into English and Spanish. Last year her novel We All Loved Cowboys (originally published in Portuguese in 2013) was published by Transit Books and lauded by the Boston Globe as one of the Best Books of 2018.
Co-Sponsorships: The Brazil Initiative; The Cogut Institute for the Humanities; and the Departments of Comparative Literature, French Studies, Hispanic Studies, and Literary Arts. This event is made possible in part thanks to a generous gift from Professor Luiz F. Valente in honor of his parents.
[Note: Both guests will also participate in a roundtable discussion on April 23rd with writer Leonardo Tonus.]
