Lecture by Francisco Goldman RI '19

Free and open to the public.


From covering the Central American wars for Harper’s Magazine in the 1980s to his more recent regular online pieces for the New Yorker about Mexico’s ongoing crisis, immigration, and Guatemala, Francisco Goldman engages some of the same issues, ideas, and places in his journalism and other nonfiction as he does in his fiction and autobiographical writings. The novel on which he’s working at the Radcliffe Institute is set in New Bedford, Massachusetts, which has a large community of immigrants from Guatemala, his mother’s native country.
