Until June 7, every day at 7 p.m., Casa América celebrates its Author’s Week, which this year is dedicated to the Central American writer Horacio Castellanos Moya, one of the great narrators of the language. Distinguished professors, critics and writers of the language will participate in this week. Admission is free until full capacity is reached.
Horacio Castellanos Moya is Salvadoran born in 1957. Author of twelve novels, and several books of short stories and essays. His first novel, La diáspora (1989), won the National Prize awarded by the Universidad Centroamericana (UCA) of El Salvador. His short novel El asco: Thomas Bernhard en San Salvador (1997) generated controversy and threats that forced him to leave his country. In Chile, he received the “Manuel Rojas” Ibero-American Narrative Prize 2014 for his work as a whole.
