On Tuesday, July 7th at 7pm, award-winning author Carolina De Robertis will visit MPC and discuss her new book The Gods of Tango. We hope that you’ll be able to join us for what is sure to be a fascinating evening — and not just because the event will feature a performance by expert tango dancers!
About The Gods of Tango
From the award-winning, internationally bestselling author of The Invisible Mountain and Perla—a lush, lyrical, deeply moving story of a young woman whose passion for the early sounds of tango becomes a force of profound and unexpected change. […] Richly evocative of place and time, its prose suffused with the rhythms of the tango, its narrative at once resonant and gripping, this is De Robertis’ most accomplished novel yet.
