Homero Aridjis in conversation with Chloe Aridjis
February 17, 2016, 7:00 PM
Dream and personal history become entangled in Homero Aridjis’s new book, The Child Poet. Aridjis’s lyrical memoir recounts the quiet, moving experiences growing up in a village in Michoacán, Mexico that led him to poetry and a love of the natural world. Mixing the lush textures of Proust with the local mythologies of Garcia Marquez, The Child Poet is a rich introduction to the life and writing of one of Mexico’s great poets. In conversation with his daughter and translator, Chloe Aridjis.
