Juliana Delgado Lopera Among Contenders For Aspen Words Literary Prize

We are delighted that Juliana Delgado Lopera’s debut novel Fiebre Tropical has been longlisted for the Aspen Words Literary Prize.

“The books on this longlist examine subjects that cut across racial, economic, political and sexual divides,” Aspen Words Executive Director Adrienne Brodeur said in a statement.

“In the pages of these books, we read about many of the issues that are playing out before our eyes during this time of social upheaval — climate collapse, government breakdown, racism and sexism. And therein lies the power of reading fiction: to create empathy and allow us to imagine better ways of existing.”
