Crooked Plow: Translating Social Justice in Brazil

October 5, 2023
6:15 PM - 8:00 PM
Faculty House, 64 Morningside Dr., New York, NY 10027

Join us for a discussion of Brazilian author Itamar Vieira Junior’s best-selling novel Crooked Plow, now available in English. Vieira Junior will be in conversation with feminist anthropologist and political activist Keisha-Khan Perry and poet and Crooked Plow translator Johnny Lorenz to explore literary writing, social justice work, and the long shadow that slavery casts. They will collectively consider how profoundly local textures of daily life and historical memory can resonate beyond the places that inspired them.

The conversation and reading will be in English and Portuguese.
