Gabriela Cabezón Cámara and Vanessa Londoño in conversation with Ricardo Sumalavia

New fiction

Arequipa 2022, 

Two authors present their new work at this event, in conversation with the writer Ricardo Sumalavia. Something in common in the work of these two writers is that they both portray the violence that permeates our societies. Gabriela Cabezón Cámara (Argentina) is a writer, cultural manager and educator; she currently holds the Laboratory of Experimentation in the Writing Arts Chair at the National University of the Arts. Her publications include Slum Virgin, Le viste la cara a Dios, Romance de la negra rubia and The Adventures of China Iron, a novel that was shortlisted for the 2020 International Booker Prize. Vanessa Londoño (Colombia) is a writer and journalist; she studied Law at the University of El Rosario in Colombia and did a Master’s in Creative Writing at New York University in the United States. Winner of the Aura Estrada and Nuevas Plumas prizes in 2017, she is the author of the novel El asedio animal (2021), which was very well received by the critics.
