ESCRIBE AQUÍ: Escribe Aquí programs honor the diversity of writing in various languages by hosting authors across cultures and languages for events and residency in The Writer’s Room. They convene to salute their own diversity; thereby transcending the notions of a dominant society that mistakenly perceives them as having ‘one’ voice. This program is funded by The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

This event is free and open to the community, but your RSVP is required to attend.
