Migrations and Borders in Today’s World - Cristina Rivera Garza 家在何方：移民與邊境問題
With the support of the Consulate General of Mexico in Hong Kong
Cristina Rivera Garza has authored six novels, three short-story collections, five poetry collections and three nonfiction books. Writing in both Spanish and English, Rivera Garza is frequently influenced by her experiences teaching on both sides of the US–Mexico border. Her writing has touched upon the themes of migration, refugee crises and a polarized political climate. Rivera Garza’s novella The Taiga Syndrome won the 2018 Shirley Jackson Award, juxtaposing elegant prose with the encroaching darkness of her narrative. Come learn more about migrations and borders in today’s world from one of Mexico’s most prolific writers. Moderated by journalist Raquel Carvalho, this session includes an afterparty with free drinks sponsored by the Consulate General of Mexico in Hong Kong and Macau SAR.
Cristina Rivera Garza著有6部小說、3部短篇故事集、5本詩集和3本非小說作品。Garza 以西班牙和英語寫作，並深受她在美國、墨西哥兩國教學經驗的影響。她的作品探討移民、難民和政治兩極等問題。這部驚心動魄的童話故事兼社會評論融匯了Garza優雅的文風與黑暗的敘事方式，成為其最令人不寒而慄的作品之一，並且於2018年榮獲雪莉·傑克森獎。 聆聽這位傑出的墨西哥作家的節目，了解更多現今的移民和邊境問題。此節目由記者Raquel Carvalho主持，墨西哥駐港澳領事館亦會為我們提供免費飲品。
