Valeria Luiselli presents Lost Children Archive
In conversation with Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts
From two-time NBCC Finalist Valeria Luiselli comes an emotionally resonant, fiercely imaginative new novel about a family’s road trip across America–an indelible journey told with breathtaking imagery, spare lyricism, and profound humanity. Told through several compelling voices, blending texts, sounds, and images, Lost Children Archive is an astonishing feat of literary virtuosity, and a richly engaging story of how we document our experiences, and how we remember the things that matter to us the most. With urgency and empathy, it takes us deep into the lives of one remarkable family as it probes the nature of justice and equality today. Luiselli presents her new book with acclaimed writer and historian Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts (author of Harlem Is Nowhere: A Journey to the Mecca of Black America).
