Salón Cultural: Race, Writing, and Culture

Join the Writers' League of Texas for an evening panel discussion by leading Mexican American writers, poets, and cultural critics to talk about the role and significance of Mexican American literature at a moment when the eyes of the nation are fixed on the border. It will be a night filled with taco truck rejoinders and reflections on the role of Latina/o writers. The WLT is proud to partner with the University of Texas' Center for American Studies, Huizache: The Magazine of Latino Literature and CentroVictoria, La Peña, and Resistencia Bookstore and Red Salmon Arts for this event. Panelists include Dagoberto Gilb, Dr. John Morán Gonzalez,Emmy Pérez, Natalie Diaz, and moderator Dr. Olivia Mena.
