Wednesday, February 24th from 12pm-1pm, ASU instructor Lori Eshleman (College of Letters and Sciences) will be giving a book discussion on her novel Pachacuti: World Overturned(Bagwyn Books).This discussion is open to all in the ASU community and will be held in the Piper Writers House on ASU’s Tempe campus.
Lori Eshleman, who has taught at ASU since 1994, has always been drawn to those spaces in time where cultural and religious traditions have encountered each other, from the European Middle Ages to colonial Latin America to the American West. Her new book of historical fiction explores the overlap of complex issues of race, gender, politics and religion through characters whose lives become entwined during an uprising in the Andean kingdom of Quito in the 1700s.
This month’s installment of “Ask the ASU Author” introduces us to the work of Lori Eshleman, who is currently an instructor of Interdisciplinary Humanities and Communication for ASU’s College of Letters and Sciences at the Polytechnic campus. Eshleman’s novel, “Pachacuti: World Overturned,” began during her travels in South America, and the work has taken a circuitous path to publication. Read her interview with ASU Magazine.
