ISS grad named to writers list

Indian Springs School alumnus Daniel Alarcn has been named by The New Yorker to its “20 under 40” young fiction writers list, published in its June 14-21 summer fiction issue.

The list, selected by the legendary literary magazine’s fiction staff, highlights 20 up-and-coming writers under age 40. A story by Alarcn will be featured in a New Yorker edition later this summer.

Alarcn, a 1995 Indian Springs graduate, is associate editor of “Etiqueta Negra,” an award-winning magazine published in his native Lima, Peru, and Visiting Scholar at the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of California-Berkeley.
