Ingrid Rojas Contreras was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. Her first novel Fruit of the Drunken Tree (Doubleday) is an Indie Next selection, a Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers selection, and a New York Times editor’s choice. Her essays and short stories have appeared in the New York Times Magazine, BuzzfeedNylon, and Guernica, among others. Rojas Contreras has received awards and fellowships from Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference, VONA, Hedgebrook, The Camargo Foundation, and the National Association of Latino Arts and Culture. She teaches writing at the University of San Francisco, and is working on a family memoir about her grandfather, a curandero from Colombia who it was said had the power to move clouds.

Because the reading immediately follows a class, we kindly ask that attendees arrive as close to the 5 pm start time as possible, but not before.
