Betina González will be joined in conversation with American Delirium translator Heather Cleary and Pittsburgh-based author Anjali Sachdeva. Betina González is the bestselling author of several novels and short story collections, for which she has won several awards, including the prestigious Premio Tusquets. American Delirium is her first book to be published in English.
