Canceled: Cristina Rivera Garza: The Afterlives of Femicide

In the summer of 1990, Liliana, the author’s then 20- year-old sister, was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. Almost 30 years later, Cristina Rivera Garza investigates the crime. Using documents left behind and interviews with family members, she paints a portrait of her sister — and also of the society that allows femicide — in »Liliana’s Invincible Summer.« »A moving, heartwrenching memoir as well as an unflinching appraisal of the widespread violence against women in Mexico.« (Kirkus Reviews)

With the kind support of the Instituto Cervantes and the Women in Europe Foundation/ TuWas Foundation for Solidarity.

Hosted by Julia Korbik.
