Cristina Rivera Garza in conversation with Guillermo Núñez

Querétaro 2021, 

The eminent Mexican writer Cristina Rivera Garza, award-winning novelist, essayist, librettist and poet, including some of the great works of Spanish-language literature such as No One Will See Me Cry (2003). She presents El invencible verano de Liliana (2021), an unsettling testimony by the author about the femicide of her sister, Liliana Rivera Garza, an architecture student who decided to take control of her life and leave an abusive relationship that had been going on for years, until her life was ended by her former partner. The book tells a terrible story that is the result of the system of patriarchal violence that we are all caught up in. Rivera Garza will talk to Guillermo Núñez about this powerful work.
