Valeria Luiselli, winner of a 2019 MacArthur “Genius” Award, is a bestselling New York-based Mexican author who writes fiction and nonfiction to voice her outrage about issues regarding 21st century migration in the United States.

 

She received the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for her bestselling 2015 novel, The Story of My Teeth, and the National Book Critics Circle Award for her 2017 nonfiction book, Tell Me How It Ends: An Essay in 40 Questions, about her work with migrant children from Central America.

 

Her new novel is Lost Children Archive (2019), about one family’s road trip from New York to Arizona—into the heart of the immigration crisis. It was named a best book of 2019 by the New York Times, TIME magazine, NPR, and O, The Oprah Magazine. It was also long-listed for the Booker Prize.
