Dahlia de la Cerda and Bibiana Candia in conversation with Claudia Ivonne Hernández

Querétaro 2022, 

Two authors of unsettling books will talk to the journalist Claudia Ivonne Hernández. With Dahlia de la Cerda (Mexico), a fiction writer, activist and philosopher, distinguished with various awards for literature and creative pursuits; the co-founder of the Morras Help Morras organization, a feminist collective that works from and for the periphery; and author of Perras de reserva (2022), a powerful collection of stories in which the writer reveals some of the most unjust aspects of the patriarchy. Our second guest is Bibiana Candia (Spain), author of the poetry books La rueda del hámster and Las trapecistas no tenemos novio, the short story collection El pie de Kafka and the narrative artefact Fe de erratas; her first novel, Azucre (2021), was chosen as one of the best fiction debuts by the El Cultural supplement of ABC newspaper (Spain). Azucre is a fascinating story, set in the 19th century, about a group of young people in Galicia where, suffering from hunger, they decide to emigrate to Cuba to work on the sugar plantations.
