On Thursday, June 14th we invite you to a reading by Puerto Rican author, photographer and film-maker Eduardo Lalo. This event will take place in Room 2 of the Taylor Institute, from 5 pm.

Eduardo Lalo is particularly interested in writing about cities, and his novel Simone, which won the Rómulo Gallegos International Novel Prize in 2013, is a haunting narrative about a writer and a Chinese-Puerto Rican woman who find themselves through their shared love of books. At this event, Lalo will read in Spanish from a number of his works (La inutilidad, Simone, Necrópolis, and Interperie). 

This event is free and open to the public.
