November 15 – Luis Alberto Urrea Talk “The House of Broken Angels”, 12pm – Quiet Study Lounge
Note: the event will be in the Quiet Study Lounge. A 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist for nonfiction, and a member of the Latino Literature Hall of Fame, the author is the critically acclaimed and best-seller of 17 books, winning numerous awards for his poetry, fiction, and essays. Born in Tijuana to a Mexican father and American mother, Urrea is most recognized as a border writer, though he says, “I am more interested in bridges, not borders.” His latest novel, The House of Broken Angels (2018), tells the story of one Mexican-American family through the last days of its patriarch. As the 2019 author for the Everybody Reads program across the Palouse, Urrea will be speaking at many locations, November 12-15.
