He will talk to Inés Santaeulalia, Head of the El País office for Colombia, Venezuela and the Andean region, about his literary career, his work as an educator at Columbia University in New York, the creation of the podcasts Radio Ambulante and El hilo, and about being made a prestigious MacArthur Fellow in 2021. Included on the 2007 Bogotá39 list, Alarcón won the 2009 International Literature Prize for Lost City Radio and is the author of the novel De noche andamos en círculos (2014), the short story collections Guerra a la luz de las velas (2006) and The King is Always Above the People (2017), and the graphic novel City of Clowns (2015).
