Patricia Engel

Join us for coffee and conversation with award-winning writer Patricia Engel, who will read from her new novel, "It's Not Love, It's Just Paris." Last fall, Engel visited Duke and read to an enraptured audience from her collection of short stories, "Vida." With an exciting new novel just out this summer, Engel returns to campus to read and discuss the life of "Lita del Cielo, the daughter of two Colombian orphans who arrived in America with nothing and made a fortune with their Latin Food Empire," who "has been granted one year to pursue her studies in Paris before she must return to work in the family business." Visit to find out more about Engel and her work.
