Junot Díaz in Conversation

September 19, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Garrison Theater
Scripps College 1030 Columbia Ave.
Claremont, CA 91711 United States

This program is sold out. The Garrison Theater Box Office will open at 5:30 pm and those still seeking a ticket can sign up for the wait list at that time.

Junot Díaz’s fiction is probing and funny. It’s also situated at the often challenging and always complex center of first-generation American experience. Díaz, Dominican Republican–born and New Jersey–bred, has a knack for capturing the messy, maudlin, and majestic dramas of finding one’s way in a brand-new world. The Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and This Is How You Lose Her visits Scripps to reflect on, among other things, the ways that literature and politics intersect. Jade Chang, author of The Wangs vs. the World, joins him for a conversation.

This program is presented in partnership with the Scripps College Humanities Institute and sponsored by the Alexa Fullerton Hampton ’42 Fund.
