After lots of understandable uproar about the fact that Chipotle’s “Cultivated Thought” series didn’t include any Latino authors, the Mexican-themed restaurant has added a crop of new writers to the mix, including Julia Alvarez, the Dominican-American poet and novelist, and Brazilian novelist Paulo Coelho.
“Cultivated Thought” authors write short, two-minute stories that appear on the backs of Chipotle bags and cups. Other authors who are participating in the series are Chinese-American author Amy Tan and Indian-American comedian Aziz Ansari.
In addition to reading the work at Chipotle, people can also read the stories online. Here’s the full list of new additions:*
Julia Alvarez, Aziz Ansari, Augusten Burroughs, Paulo Coelho, Jeffrey Eugenides, Neil Gaiman, Walter Issacson, Barbara Kingsolver, Amy Tan and Carlos Ruiz Zafron
