Deconstructing The Anatomy Of ‘Forgetting’

An encore broadcast with journalist, author, activist and educator Roberto Alvarenga Lovato.

Roberto Lovato is the author of Unforgetting (Harper Collins), a “groundbreaking” memoir the New York Times picked as an “Editor’s Choice.” Newsweek listed Lovato’s memoir as a “must read” 2020 book which the Los Angeles Times listed as one of its 20 Best Books of 2020. Unforgetting was also shortlisted for the 2022 William Saroyan International Prize for Writing.

Lovato, a Visiting Assistant Professor of English at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, is also a journalist whose work has appeared in the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Guernica, Le Monde Diplomatique, La Opinion, Der Spiegel and other national and international media outlets. A recipient of a reporting grant from the Pulitzer Center, Lovato has reported on numerous issues-violence, terrorism, the drug war and the refugee crisis-from Mexico, Venezuela, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Haiti, France and the United States, among other countries.

I am honored to call Roberto my friend and am certain you will enjoy this compelling, informative and deeply personal conversation from September 9, 2020 shortly after the launch of his book Unforgetting: a Memoir of Family, Migration, Gangs, and Revolution in the Americas.
