Join us for an event celebrating Bruno Lloret’s Nancy, a powerful coming-of-age story that tracks Nancy’s youth through remote memories of her Chilean childhood, translated by Ellen Jones. Chilean author Bruno Lloret and translator Ellen Jones join Kathryn Scanlan to discuss his innovative use of typography and illustration to capture his narrator’s waning sense of consciousness.
