“Not Too Late” – Rebecca Solnit

Event Dates:
Universidad Diego Portales
02 April 2024

First she wanted to be a dancer, then a librarian, then a writer. A writer who sees her craft as the art of identifying the constellations of the night sky.

In Manuel Vicuña’s interview with Rebecca Solnit, the American essayist and activist invites us to take risks and create stories that don’t imprison us, but rather free us from the pessimism that paralyses us when faced with climate change and forces us to conform to customs and beliefs that harm us.

Feminist writer and advocate of the political function of hope, Solnit also takes time to discuss the cuisine of her writing, her understanding of non-fiction, and the pleasures of wandering landscapes of consciousness.
