Great Literature Discussion: “Seeing Red” with Author Lina Meruane (Online)
January 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This week’s discussion is about Seeing Red by Lina Meruane. We’re also thrilled to announce that we’ll be joined by the author herself for our discussion.
This profound novel describes a young Chilean writer recently relocated to New York for doctoral work who suffers a stroke, leaving her blind and increasingly dependent. Lina Meruane explores our tenuous relationship with medicine and science as she confronts the often terrifying nature of the demands we make of those who love us.
Lina Meruane is an award-winning Chilean novelist. Her work, written in Spanish, has been translated into English, Italian, Portuguese, German, and French. She won Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts fellowships. Professor Meruane’s doctoral work was a New York University, where she teaches Latin American literature and culture.
If you have a question for Lina, please submit it to Gunther and he’ll create a queue of questioners.
About GLD: Literary works will be discussed based on what can be found in the text in order to enrich each other’s interpretation of the novel/novella. All are welcome to join and any edition or translation of the book under discussion can be used. Read the work in advance and be prepared to discuss the aspects of interest to you by referring to specific related text and reading it to the group.
