Macondo: Imaginary and Real
May 1 | Austrian Cultural Forum | NYC
With László Garaczi, Geert Mak, Santiago Roncagliolo, and Josep-Maria Terricabras; moderated by Anderson Tepper
Many know the city Macondo as the vibrant fictional world that became a character in its own right in Gabriel Garcia Márquez’s classic One Hundred Years of Solitude. Still others know Macondo as the Austrian refugee camp that, since 1956, has provided homes to displaced people from all over the globe. Writers from Europe and Latin America talk about home and migration, both fictional and real.
