Panel w/ Juan Villoro (The Guilty: Stories) and Ayse Papatya Bucak (The Trojan War Museum: and Other Stories) 


The surreal and speculative stories in The Trojan War Museum by Ayse Papatya Bucak examine the tension between myth and history, cultural categories and personal identity, performance and authenticity. , "Juan Villoro's  collection of short stories The Guilty, reveals the deep dissatisfactions and absurdities of life in Mexico.  In the short stories of The World Doesn't Require You, author Rion Amilcar Scott is back in fictional Cross River, Md., established in β€œthe country's only successful slave revolt,” with deadpan humor and a touch of magic realism."
