Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez is at the UNM Bookstore Tuesday, March 3 at 2 p.m. to sign copies of his book, One Day I’ll Tell You the Things I’ve Seen: Stories (University of New Mexico Press, 2015). This event is free and open to the public. The UNM Bookstore is located at 2301 Central Ave. NE, at the intersection of Cornell and Central.
The stories in One Day I’ll Tell You the Things I’ve Seen take readers around the world, from the orchards of California to the cornfields of Iowa, from the neighborhoods of Madrid and Mexico City to the Asian shore of Istanbul. As the characters navigate borders and border crossings—both physical and psychological—they attempt to make sense of their increasingly complex memories and relationships.
Vaquera-Vásquez, an assistant professor in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of New Mexico, is also the author of Algún día te cuento las cosas que he visto (Createspace, 2012). His literary work has been published in anthologies in Spain, Italy, Latin America and the United States, including Malos elementos. His academic work on US/Mexico border cultures has been published in journals and anthologies in Mexico and the United States, and presented at international conferences.
