Junot you want to

Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin more than redeemed himself for killing off your favorite characters when he reopened the historic Jean Cocteau Cinema (418 Montezuma Ave., Santa Fe) just last August. Already it’s become a thriving hub of geekery, cultural commotion and nostalgic revivals. Now nationally celebrated literary powerhouses are being added to the mix. On Monday, April 21, at 7pm, the author of Pulitzer-winning The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, Junot Diaz, comes for a signing and reading featuring his newest collection of stories, This is How You Lose Her. He’ll be interviewed by Drs. Shanté Paradigm Smalls and Santiago Vaquera-Vásquez, two UNM assistant professors with mighty pop-culture chops of their own. Or if mystery is more your thing, check out Anne Perry when she visits on Thursday, April 24 at 7pm. Cost for each is $5 or $10, depending on whether you purchase a book; head to jeancocteaucinema.com to read more about the cinema’s dazzling array of happenings.
