Minnesota Writers Series: Junot Diaz
Junot Díaz is a Pulitzer Prize-winning author and former guest of The Colbert Report. The New York Times describes his novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao (Riverhead Press), as "Mario Vargas Llosa meets Star Trek meets David Foster Wallace meets Kanye West." Díaz, who moved to New Jersey from the Dominican Republic when he was six years old, has praised immigrants as Super Americans, founded the Voices of Our Nation writing workshop, and titled his Minneapolis reading "We Are the New America."
