Yoss and Tash will also take part in two panels: at 4:00pm, Yoss will join Mexican author Álvaro Enrigue and Chilean Carlos Labbé in a panel moderated by noted Bolaño translator Natasha Wimmer called "From Sci-Fi to Meta (and Heavy Metal): New Dimensions in Latin American Fiction," and at 5:00pm, Tash will join authors Nicole Dennis-Benn and Jonas Hassen Khemiri at an event called "On Identity and Sexuality."
