Viva Latino: Own Voices Writers in Conversation

In early 2020, the Hispanic literary community led an important national dialogue about the importance of “own voices” literature and inequities in the publishing industry. Leading and award-winning contemporary Latin American writers gather to discuss their perspectives on the importance of own voices narratives in providing representation for readers. This program offers Latino/a/x and non-Latin Marylanders with an opportunity to learn about the diversity of the Latin American community, as represented in literature and poetry. 

Featured Speakers:
Julia Alvarez, National Medal of Arts Winner
Angie Cruz, Inaugural GMA Book Club Author
Reyna Grande, American Book Award Winner
Juan Felipe Herrera, U.S. Poet Laureate (2015-2017)
Lupita Aquino, moderator, @Lupita.Reads

Presented by the Prince George's County Memorial Library System, Frederick County Public Libraries, and Charles County Public Library as part of Maryland Libraries Together. This program is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, through the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Maryland State Library.

Maryland Libraries Together is a collaboration of Maryland libraries to engage communities in enriching educational experiences that advance an understanding of the issues of our time.

Purchase the authors' books from Loyalty Bookstores (https://loyaltybookstores.com) or Curious Iguana (https://curiousiguana.com). Borrow the books from your local public library.
