Javier O. Huerta will present his supermarket epic, American Copia, in which he uses the grocery store as a guiding motif to critique the conflation of citizenship and consumerism in this land of abundance.  By sharing the immigrant experiences of family, friends, colleagues, and random strangers, he will offer literary tours of supermarkets and grocery stores throughout Texas, California, and Tamaulipas. A graduate of the Bilingual MFA Creative Writing Program at the University of Texas at El Paso, Javier O. Huerta currently lives and writes in Berkeley, California.
