A native of Portugal and currently a Resident at the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa, Patricia Portela is the author of the novels Para Cima e Não Para Norte (2008) and  Banquete (2012). A founder of the cultural association Prado, she teaches regularly at Forum Dança in Lisbon and, recently, in the Program for Visual Criticism and Film at the University of Antwerp. According to the website House on Fire, Portela’s main artistic focus for the past decade has been “the relationship between time and space, virtuality and reality in performing arts and daily life; these aims are accomplished by putting on stage text, language and technology.”

The reading will begin at 8:00 p.m. in the Governor’s Room at Overman Student Center, followed by a reception in the Heritage Room.
