A Conversation with Ingrid Rojas Contreras

The Founders Memorial Library will be hosting a book talk with author Ingrid Rojas Contreras on Wednesday, April 17th from 5-6 pm. 

Her novel, Fruit of the Drunken Tree, is a national bestseller and New York Times Editor Pick. This autobiographically inspired story takes place in Bogotá, Colombia during the height of the Pablo Escobar’s drug cartel in the 1990s.   The two main characters, nine-year-old Chula Santiago and her family maid, thirteen-year-old Petrona represent contrasting socioeconomic classes which determines how they experience their violent environment.
