In Our Lingo:

James Cañon with Silvana Paternostro
El Museo del Barrio presents
Tuesday, April 15,
6:30-8:30 pm

In connection with New York City's 5th Annual Immigrant History Week, New York based Colombian author James Cañon will interview World Policy Institute Senior Fellow Silvana Paternostro, author of My Colombian War: A Journey Through the Country I Left Behind (Henry Holt and Co., 2007). The authors will discuss Paternostro's two wars: the bloody, decades-long battle between leftist rebels and the Colombian government, and the author's own struggle to embrace her Colombian identity while making a life for herself in the U.S.

In Our Lingo brings together Latino authors in conversation with filmmakers, artists, and other authors to share their views on the ideas, themes, and social issues addressed in a specific work presented each session. These intimate dialogues give the audience a unique perspective on contemporary Latino literature.
Admission: Free.

El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10029
