March 29 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm EDT

Join us as we close off the month of March with an Afternoon Tertulía on Tuesday, March 29th, 2022. Set in the wake of Hurricane Maria, Xavier Navarro Aquino’s unforgettable debut novel follows a remarkable group of survivors searching for hope on an island torn apart by both natural disaster and human violence. Velorio—meaning “wake”—is a story of strength, resilience, and hope; a tale of peril and possibility buoyed by the deeply held belief in a people’s ability to unite against those corrupted by power. Join Dr. Aquino, Dr.Stanchich and Professor Moreno in their conversation and be sure to bring your burning questions for after the discussion!
