Contemporary Realism in Latinx Fiction (Virtual)

Hosted by the Dominican Writers Association and Soho Press, Sofia Quintero (Show and Prove), Francesca Padilla (What’s Coming to Me), and Christine Kandic Torres (The Girls in Queens) discuss the continued need for authentic Latinx fiction that holds up mirrors to real life inequities. While Latinx readers deserve escapist stories and representation in all genres, novels that honestly depict the painful imprints of race and class in the real world remain important as ever to represent the true lived experiences, both positive and painful, of today’s Latinx youth.
