Gregorio Kohon, whose recently published novel Red Parrot, Wooden Leg was received with excellent critical reviews, will talk with fellow psychoanalysts Ignes Sodre and Leon Kleimberg about some of the themes present in his book: rites of passage and self-discovery in adolescence, the place of literature in young people's lives, and political repression in Latin America. The three speakers have had the experience of living in critical and difficult periods in the history of their respective countries (Argentina, Brazil and Peru).
