Marie Arana in Conversation with Carlos Lozada
- September 4, 2019
The author of Silver, Sword & Stone comes to DC on Fri., Sept. 6th, at 7PM!
Latin America encompasses myriad geographies, peoples, and cultures, but as Arana’s new book illustrates, over the last several hundred years the region as a whole has been shaped by three constants: exploitation, violence, and religion. With the historical mastery and psychological insight she showed in her biography, Bolívar, Arana, also a novelist and former Washington Post “Book World” editor, tells the story of three contemporary Latin Americans — an impoverished miner in the Andes, a Cuban veteran of the wars in Angola, and a Spanish Jesuit in Bolivia — whose lives reflect the ongoing impact of these continuing forces.
Arana will be in conversation with Carlos Lozada, Pulitzer Prize-winning nonfiction book critic at the Washington Post.
