'Crecer a golpes'

Chronicles and Essays on Latin America 40 years after Allende and Pinochet with Spanish author and journalist Enric Gonzalez.

On September 11, 1973, one of the bloodiest dictatorships takes control of Chile and changes the face of a nation and the history of a continent.

Crecer a golpes is a compilation of essays and chronicles written by thirteen renowned novelists and journalists that tell the story of unresolved conflicts in Latin America and their long-lasting impact on the lives of millions of people.

Spanish journalist and writer Enric González will be joined by Argentinean editor and author Diego Fonseca, Mexican author Alvaro Enrigue (Anagrama Award, novel 2013), and Guatemalan author and journalist Francisco Goldman to present the book and discuss the past, present and future of Latin America. Moderated by Karen Phillips, executive director of Words without Borders.
