Alicia Gaspar de Alba and Michael Nava

This is a one-on-one conversation between six-time Lammy-winner, Michael Nava, and Lambda LitFest Steering Committee Member, Alicia Gaspar de Alba. Topics include creating a queer detective who also happens to be Chicano, revising a novel after 30 years, writing a mystery with a mission, writing sex scenes, navigating social and familial homophobia, and advice to new writers. After the plática, Michael will read from the recently released revision of his first Henry Rios’ mystery, The Little Death, now titled Lay Your Sleeping Head (Kórima Press 2016).
