An Evening with Debut Novlist Ingrid Rojas Contreras
A good first novel can help us see the world in a new way. Fruit of the Drunken Tree by Ingrid Rojas Contreras is a great first novel. We are delighted to invite you to an evening with debut novelist Ingrid Rojas Contreras -- she's also a journalist at KQED -- on Thursday, 23 August 2018 at 7 PM.
Inspired by the author's own life, and told through the alternating perspectives of the willful Chula and the achingly hopeful Petrona, Fruit of the Drunken Tree contrasts two very different, but inextricably linked coming-of-age stories. In lush prose, Rojas Contreras has written a powerful testament to the impossible choices women are often forced to make in the face of violence and the unexpected connections that can blossom out of desperation.
"Original, politically daring, and passionately written-- Fruit of the Drunken Tree is the coming-of-age female empowerment story we need in 2018." -- Vogue
