Laura Alcoba in conversation with Rocío Ferreira

Literature that gives meaning to the incomprehensible

Arequipa 2023, 
The acclaimed author of the Trilogía de la casa de los conejos presents her latest novel, a moving story based on real events. For A través del bosque, Laura Alcoba (Argentina-France) investigated the infanticide committed in 1984 by an Argentinean woman exiled in France, taking us into the minds of the survivors of that tragedy more than 30 years afterwards. At this event with Rocío Ferreira, the writer will talk about the ways in which literature can give meaning and closure to the incomprehensible.
