Cristina Sánchez-Andrade will read from her newly translated novel, 
The Winterlings. Enchanting as a spell, The Winterlings blends Spanish oral tradition, Latin American magic realism, and the American gothic fiction of Flannery O’Connor and Shirley Jackson into an intoxicating story of romance, the violent history of the Spanish Civil War, and the mysterious forces that move people.

Cristina Sánchez-Andrade is the author of eight novels, including Ya No Pisa la Tierra Tu Rey (Your King No Longer Walks this Earth), which won the Guadalajara International Book Fair’s prestigious Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz literary prize, and Las Inviernas (The Winterlings), which was a finalist for the Herralde Novel Prize in 2013. She lives in Madrid.
