FORA.tv Speaker - Willy Lizarraga
I was born and raised in Peru and arrive in San Francisco as a teenager. I have one published novel in Spanish, "Mientras Elena en su lecho." It won the 1995 Letras de Oro Literary Prize, organized by the University of Miami. My short story, "La Mas Chingona," won the 2008 New South Short Fiction Contest, organized by Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia. Currently I am working on my first novel in English, "The Last King of the Mission," and on a trilogy of plays dealing with different concept of borders, "Ten Million Mexican Suicide Bombers," "Burqa Vs Miniskirt," and "Neither Masculine Nor Femenine But Quite the Opposite."
