Hosted by Editor-in-chief Michael Reynolds

Europa Editions is an award-winning independent publisher of quality fiction, founded with the mission to bring fresh international voices to American and British markets. In 2015 Greenlight hosted Europa’s 10th Anniversary Party, and we’re thrilled to host them again for an evening celebrating two of their latest publications. Master storyteller Chantel Acevedo presents her latest novel The Living Infinite. A sweeping historical saga, The Living Infinite follows a firebrand Bourbon princess, from the crumbling Spanish court to revolutionary Cuba to the Chicago Worlds Fair as she works to carve out a life for herself that defies her family’s (and society’s) rigid mold. Santiago Gamboa presents Return to the Dark Valley, a mesmerizing polyphonic novel that spans three continents and two centuries as it weaves a tale about dislocation, the violent urges that can bring about regeneration, and the impossibility of return. Europa editor-in-chief Michael Reynolds moderates the conversation as Acevedo and Gamboa present their latest work, with a wine reception to follow.
