Description

The Guest Writers Series is happy to host Diane Williams and Javier Zamora at the Finch Lane Gallery.

Javier Zamora was born in La Herradura, El Salvador in 1990. In 1999, Javier migrated through Guatemala, Mexico, and eventually the Sonoran Desert. After a coyote abandoned his group in Oaxaca, Javier managed to make it to Arizona with the aid of other migrants. His first full-length collection, Unaccompanied (Copper Canyon Press, September 2017), explores how immigration and the civil war have impacted his family.

Diane Williams (born 1946) is an American author, primarily of short stories. She lives in New York City and is the founder and editor of the literary annual NOON. She is the author of nine books, including The Collected Stories of Diane Williams, published by Soho Press in 2018.

This event is made possible with support from the Guest Writers Series, Finch Lane Gallery, and Utah Humanities.
