Join us for this bilingual reading and Q&A with 2021 Jabuti Award winner Monique Malcher! This event will include readings in both English and Portuguese, and questions can be asked in both languages.  

Monique Malcher is a writer and visual artist born in Santarém, Pará, located in the Amazon. Her debut short story collection Flor de Gume won the 2021 Jabuti Award, the most prestigious literary prize in Brazil. Flor de Gume was born out of her research on gender and gender-based violence. It consists of 37 stories that draw inspiration from women she encounters frequently, including those in her family, in academic texts, and in fiction. Monique holds an MA in Anthropology and is currently an interdisciplinary doctoral student in São Paulo, where she researches women-authored literature and comics.

Writer and filmmaker Ana Laura Malmaceda will moderate this event. They hold an MA in Brazilian Studies (University of Lisbon), and are currently working on a Ph.D. in Romance Languages (French and Portuguese) at Harvard University.

This event is sponsored by the Cambridge Public Library Foundation and the Manuel Rogers, Sr. Fund.
