Hispanic Heritage: Reading of Manhattan Tropics
Start Date: 9/24/2019Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 9/24/2019End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:
Manhattan Tropics/ Trópico en Manhattan is a bilingual scholarly edition of Guillermo Cotto-Thorner's 1951 novel, with translator Professor Bret Maney (Department of English), and co-editor with Cristina Pérez Jiménez, a professor of English at Manhattan College, in nearby Riverdale.

As the first novel of the Puerto Rican mass migration to New York City, Manhattan Tropics is a foundational work of Latinx literature that has never before been translated into English. Closer to our own institutional home, part of the novel is set in the South Bronx. The book was published by Arte Público Press (based at the University of Houston) in its "Recovering the U.S. Hispanic Literary Heritage Series" in April 2019.
