Latino Americanidades: El Misha
Start Date: 3/20/2015Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 3/20/2015End Time: 6:00 PM
Event Description:
The third and final Latino Americanidades event sponsored by Swarthmore's Latin American Studies Program will consist of a book reading of the novel, El Misha, by author Braulio Muñoz on Friday, March 20 at 4:30 p.m. in the McCabe Library Atrium.  Excerpts from the book will be read in Spanish.

Braulio Muñoz, Centennial Professor of Sociology at Swarthmore, will read from his most recent novel written in Spanish: El Misha (Estruendomudo, Lima, 2014). The novel will be presented by Aurora Camacho de Schmidt, Emerita Professor of Spanish from Swarthmore College.

We write fiction for multiple purposes: sometimes to create something new, sometimes as an act of exorcism. Or, for the recovery of memory, which is how Edilberto Isaac Peres-Benayón Montañez sees the writing of his novel. The ex-navy captain leaves his commission in the intelligence service in order to dig into the past and face traumas and regrets which might take a lifetime to accomplish. To do this he must recreate the life of his older brother, Benjamín Elías, who is a guerrilla fighter in the Peru of the 1980’s. Edilberto Isaac takes us on a dazzling trip as he uncovers family secrets which are inevitably braided with the social processes and the violence that has marked Peru’s history in the second half of the twentieth century.
