An Evening with Lilliam Rivera + Stephen Kaliski
October 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Acclaimed author Lilliam Rivera blends magical realism into a timely story about cultural identity, overcoming trauma, and first love.
Award-winning writer Lilliam Rivera will be in conversation with Davidson’s own Stephen Kaliski, accomplished director and playwright and Visiting Assistant Professor of Theatre at Davidson College. Kaliski’s recent works include The Briefly Dead, a sequel to Euripides’ Alcestis, and The Refugees, a loose adaptation of Greek myths, inspired by the current refugee crisis in southern Europe, that offers pointed commentary on the very contemporary issues of climate change, xenophobia, generational conflict, and compromised ideals.
Lilliam Rivera will be speaking with the hijas of Circle de Luz as a part of her virtual tour with us on October 22. With your help, Main Street Books will be gifting each girl in the program a copy of Rivera’s latest release, NEVER LOOK BACK.
Circle de Luz is a Charlotte-based nonprofit that radically empowers young Latinas by supporting their transformation through extensive mentoring, holistic programming, and scholarship funds for further education.
