On April 29th in Mexico City

Stitched Panorama

I have been invited to speak at the American School on Monday, April 29th, at 2:30 pm. I will be talking about my experience as a writer and a mitigation specialist in Mexico, and where they converge. I'll also be reading a fragment of the novel I have been working on for the last five years, and am in the process of finishing.

If you are going to be in Mexico City, the event is open to the public. The American School is located at Calle Bondojito 215 in Colonia Las Américas, a short cab ride from metro Observatorio. Go to the main entrance of the school and tell the guards you're there to attend the David Lida event in the Upper School Library -- please specify as the school has four libraries. You will be issued a visitor pass.

If you can come early, please do so: School lets out at 2:30 pm, so it's a bit chaotic at that hour. If you know for sure that you are coming feel free to contact Janet, the Upper School librarian. She can make sure your name is put on a guest list. Her email is castelpietraj@asf.edu.mx. Some parking is available.
