Latina authors talk about their new works: bilingual poetry, a novel rooted in the fantastic

As engrossing as it is innovative, vivid, moving, and full of wit and humor, The President and the Frog explores the resilience of the human spirit and what is possible when danger looms.

A writer of Uruguayan origins, Carolina De Robertis is the author of the novels The President and the FrogCantoras, winner of a Stonewall Book Award and a Reading Women Award, a finalist for the Kirkus Prize and a Lambda Literary Award, and a New York Times Editors’ Choice.
