Mario Vargas Llosa, one of the most important contemporary authors, will be spending the fall semester in Princeton. He will be teaching a seminar on Borges for PLAS and a creative writing workshop for the Lewis Center. On October 11, at 7:30 pm, he will give a public lecture in Richardson Auditorium.
Llosa should have gotten the nobel prize in lit years ago, but better late than never! I’m sorry I missed this lecture, though, I would love to see him speak. We are getting some of his work on Get Poetic, the upcoming social network for poets and authors. It will be live in a few weeks.
