Living Writers presents Rita Indiana The program is free and open to everyone.
A force in contemporary Caribbean literature and music who has been named one of the 100 most influential people of Latin American descent, Rita Indiana was born and raised in the Dominican Republic. She is the author of three collections of stories and five novels, three of which have been translated into English. Papi made World Literature Today’s list of 75 Notable Translations and has been made into a film directed by Noelia Quintero. Tentacle won the Grand Prize of the Association of Caribbean Writers. The Guardian praises its “dry, sardonic tone,” which “anchors the pulpy narrative, with its bloody violence, brutish sex and futuristic flourishes.” Following on her band’s 2010 cult hit record El Juidero, she released in 2020 her album Mandinga Times, to critical acclaim.
Co-sponsored by LGBTQ Studies, Film & Media Studies, and the Africana & Latin American Studies program.
