Best Latin American Writers Under 39
Generación Bogotá 39—The World Book Capital Picks the Best Latin American Writers Under 39
The international cultural organization Bogotá World Book Capital and the Hay Festival announced last month the 39 most important Latin American writers under 39 years of age. The event took place during the 20th Feria Internacional del Libro Bogotá (Bogota International Book Fair), which ran April 19–May 1. The list, which includes established authors such as Jorge Volpi and Wendy Guerra, is the first step towards answering the question “Where is contemporary Latin American literature heading?” The 39 authors were selected from 200 finalists by a jury of three prominent Colombian novelists: Piedad Bonnett, Hector Abad Faciolince, and Oscar Collazos.
