Join us for an author talk with Sergio Troncoso, who will discuss his book, "A Peculiar Kind of Immigrant's Son," a collection of linked short stories on immigration which Luis Alberto Urrea called “a world-class collection.”
Troncoso also edited the 2021 anthology, "Nepantla Familias: An Anthology of Mexican American Literature on Families in between Worlds," which received a starred review from Kirkus Reviews. The author of eight books and a Fulbright scholar, Troncoso is president of the Texas Institute of Letters and teaches at the Yale Writers' Workshop. He has served as a judge for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction and the New Letters Prize for Essays. His work has recently appeared in the Texas Highways, Houston Chronicle, CNN Opinion, Yale Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, and Texas Monthly. His novel Nobody's Pilgrims is forthcoming in 2022.
This program will be presented both in person as well as online with the author appearing virtually.
