JUNOT DÍAZ

Duke's Department of English presents one of the world's most acclaimed authors—a label he'd be sure to brush off—as this year's Blackburn Visiting Fiction Writer. Junot Díaz is the author of the award-winning novel The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao and the acclaimed story collection This Is How You Lose Her. In addition to reading and signing, he'll probably have opinions on all matter of current events; he's a regular pundit on issues such as immigration and the presidential election. For some additional insight, check out the recent Duke University Press collection Junot Díaz and the Decolonial Imagination, the first sustained critical analysis of his work. Be sure to register soon at Eventbrite, as the reading has already been moved to a larger venue once, and lightning ain't gonna strike twice. —Zack Smith
