Junot Diaz Coming to New Orleans

Junot Diaz, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, is coming to New Orleans. He'll be giving a lecture on Monday, August 31, as part of Tulane University's Reading Project. The lecture starts at 7:00pm (Doors open at 6:15pm) and goes until 8:30pm, and will be held in Tulane's McAlister Auditorium.

I read The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao two summers ago. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am excited that Tulane picked a work of Latin American/Latino fiction for its Reading Project selection.

I'm planning to attend and I hope you will, too.
