On Wednesday, July 27, former writer in residence Horacio Castellanos Moya bid Pittsburgh farewell with a reading from Tyrant Memory, his newest novel to be translated into English. The City of Asylum-sponsored event, which roughly 140 people attended, was followed by a Q&A and a book signing, during which participants had the opportunity to exchange one-on-one goodbyes. Castellanos Moya, who will begin teaching at the University of Iowa this fall, noted in his speech that such a large send-off was, for him, a new experience. “Most of the time, when I leave a city, I just escape,” he said.
