the heritage of borges and cortazar
Jorge Luis Borges and Julio Cortázar were two of the most emblematic Latin American writers of the 20th century, having approached literature from two very different perspectives and having influenced multiple generations of writers. This evening four contemporary Argentinian writers: Luis Chitarroni, María Martoccia, Matías Serra Bradford and Cecilia Szperling will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of writing under the shadow of these literary legends.
