Author Series: Junot Diaz

Junot Diaz, the renowned bestselling author of Drown, will read from and sign his highly anticipated new novel, The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao.  Moving from the inner-city neighborhoods of New Jersey to the barrios of Santo Domingo and from the fear-plagued Trujillo dictatorship to the multicultural campuses of the United States, Diaz both redefines the immigrant experience and transends it.
