For our last episode of the “Stories, But Shorter” season, the wonderful Daniel Olivas joins us to read his short story, “The Great Wall”. This powerful story is in response to Donald Trump’s inhumane treatment of immigrants, specifically families, and his insistence of constructing a wall between Mexico and the United States. Daniel does an excellent job of showing the power artists possess in reminding people that we must be and do better.
Daniel A. Olivas is the author of nine books including The King of Lighting Fixtures: Stories (University of Arizona Press), and Crossing the Border: Collected Poems (Pact Press). He is also the co-editor of The Coiled Serpent: Poets Arising from the Cultural Quakes and Shifts of Los Angeles (Tía Chucha Press), and editor of Latinos in Lotusland: An Anthology of Contemporary Southern California Literature (Bilingual Press). Olivas has written for The New York Times and the Los Angeles Review of Books.
