Don't miss this appearance by this celebrated Mexican author, one of the most talked-about figures in current literary circles: The New York Times has called her new novel, The Lost Children Archive, a "mold-breaking new classic." The Lost Children Archive calls urgent attention to the horrors befalling unaccompanied refugee children trying to reach the US from Central America. But through its protagonists, an unhappy couple working on different projects at the Mexico-US border, the book also questions the right to make art from others' real-life suffering, according to NYT critic Parul Sehgal.
