LLILAS Benson Latin American Studies and Collections presents the 16th annual ¡A Viva Voz! Celebration of Latina/o Arts and Culture.

The authors are award-winning writers and scholars whose works span a range of genres. Castillo will read from So Far from God (1993) and Loverboys (1996). Tafolla will read from Curandera (1983).

A reception will follow the reading and conversation. During the event, copies of the banned texts will be given away via raffle.
