Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez, our Community Kick-Off Event speaker was asked during the Q&A following his talk to share some of his favorite Latin American/Latinx authors.
His list was quite extensive - and too quick for us to write down! So, he kindly emailed his recommendations for us to share. Enjoy!

Rodrigo Fresán, The Bottom of the Sky (original: El fondo del cielo)
Clarice Lispector. The Hour of the Star
