Dystopia, climate change, terrorism – our preoccupation with the planet’s fate has made these the default themes of the 21st century. Author and activist Junot Díaz examines why this has happened, and spells out ways in which marginalised communities can empower themselves.
Junot Díaz was born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New Jersey. He is the author of Drown; The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award; and This Is How You Lose Her, a New York Times bestseller and National Book Award finalist. He is a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship, the PEN/Malamud Award, the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, the Guggenheim Fellowship, and the PEN/O. Henry Award.Junot Díaz is featured in the following SWF event(s):
