The Gringa with Andrew Altschul! (in conversation with John Calderazzo)
Old Firehouse Books is excited to host author Andrew Altschul in celebration of the release of his new book, The Gringa. We invite you to join us on Wednesday, April 15th at 6:00pm at the store to hear Andrew in conversation with fellow CSU professor John Calderazzo. This event is free and open to the public.
The Gringa is a gripping and subversive novel about the slippery nature of truth and the tragic consequences of American idealism. Passionate and idealistic, Leonora Gelb came to Peru to make a difference. But her beliefs are tested when she falls in with violent revolutionaries, and she finds herself in prison after a bloody government raid. Ten years later, failed-novelist-turned-expat Andres is asked to write a magazine profile of “Le Leo.” His personal life unravels as he struggles to answer the question: is the real Leonora an activist or a terrorist?
We hope you’ll join us for this event!
