Maple Street at Latter Book Club - Kingdom Cons

July 13th, 2017


The Maple Street Book Club, now known as the Maple Street at Latter Book Club, are meeting Thursday, July 13th, at 6pm at Latter Library to discuss Yuri Herrera’s newly translated novel, Kingdom Cons.

Yuri will also be doing a reading at Maple Street Book Shop On July 19th, at 6pm.

“In the court of the King, everyone knows their place. But as the Artist wins hearts and egos with his ballads, uncomfortable truths emerge that shake the Kingdom to its core. Part surreal fable and part crime romance, this prize-winning novel from Yuri Herrera questions the price of keeping your integrity in a world ruled by patronage and power.”

Born in Actopan, Mexico, Yuri Herrera’s English-language debut Signs Preceding the End of the World won the 2016 Best Translated Book Award. His follow-up The Transmigration of Bodies has built on the critical and popular success of its predecessor. He teaches at Tulane University in New Orleans.
