AOT #272: Francisco Goldman Podcasts Say Her Name
Multiple award-winning and critically acclaimed journalist and author Francisco Goldman reads from and discusses his new autobiographical novel Say Her Name. Goldman married a beautiful young writer named Aura Estrada in a romantic Mexican hacienda in the summer of 2005. The month before their second anniversary, during a long-awaited holiday, Aura broke her neck while body surfing. Francisco, blamed for Aura’s death by her family and blaming himself, wanted to die, too. But instead he wrote Say Her Name, a love story, a bold inquiry into destiny and accountability, and a tribute to Aura, who she was and who she would have been.
