TILTS invites you to join us for a public reading with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Díaz. Featuring prose that is “irresistible” and “exhilarating,” Díaz's fiction is at the forefront of contemporary narratives of this kind. His work illuminates the identities, relationships, and ambitions of the Dominican and Dominican American characters at the center of his stories.
