Valeria Luiselli is the winner of the 2021 Dublin Literary Award! Her novel Lost Children Archive triumphed over an extraordinarily strong shortlist.
Interweaving works of literature, music, maps, photographs, and other documents with multiple narrative voices, Luiselli has composed a masterpiece that is at once an exhilarating, lyrical road novel and an unsparing meditation on dislocation, remembering, and storytelling.
Join Valeria in conversation with Colm Tóibín, himself a previous winner of the award, for this exclusive live event to close our festival, where you can put your questions to the author.
