On Wednesday, April 5, 2017, the Department of Portuguese and the Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture were fortunate enough to host the Portuguese author, Joao Tordo.

Students, faculty, staff and community members who attended his Conversation about Literature and Intervention, were charmed as he discussed the inspirations behind his books, his fond memories of his stories as well as many of his favorite and inspiring Portuguese and American novels and authors.

His books are translated in several languages and countries, including France, Germany, Italy, Hungary and Brazil.

He also works as a screenwriter, teaches creative writing workshops, and occasionally plays the double bass.

He will publish his tenth novel in April 2017.
