2013 Graduate School Public Lectures: Junot Díaz
This event is sold out. As a courtesy, registrations will be accepted on a space-available basis 15 minutes before the event.
Writer, scholar and public intellectual Junot Díaz will spend an evening with the UW community doing what he does best: sharing select readings from his latest book: This is How You Lose Her. In this reading, Díaz will share stories about the haunting, impossible power of love—obsessive love, illicit love, fading love, maternal love.
In prose that is endlessly energetic, inventive, tender, and funny, his reading—containing mature content—will lay bare the infinite longing and inevitable weakness of the human heart. Díaz will remind us that passion always triumphs over experience, and that “the half-life of love is forever.”
Junot Díaz is a professor of writing at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
