Book Launch: Robert Lopez presents Dispatches from Puerto Nowhere: An American Story of Assimilation and Erasure
In conversation with Touré!
Greenlight is delighted to welcome the singular writer of American fiction Robert Lopez to celebrate his masterwork of nonfiction, Dispatches from Puerto Nowhere: An American Story of Assimilation and Erasure. "That I was born Puerto Rican was happenstance, but that I have no connection to what it means is no accident. And none of it bothered me until recently, which is probably why I can't quite put my finger on any of this. I'm still grappling with what I've lost and how I can miss something I've never had." Robert Lopez paints a compassionate portrait of family that attempts to bridge the past to the present, and reclaim a heritage threatened by assimilation and erasure. In conversation with Greenlight favorite, Touré, please join us in welcoming Lopez to our events stage for an evening with one of the most exciting writers working today.
