Staff-recommended reading from the
Luis Alberto Urrea in Kalamazoo
Featured author Luis Alberto Urrea visited Kalamazoo for two days in March 2012 as part of Kalamazoo Public Library's Reading Together program. Presented here are highlights of the three programs Urrea took part in; Conversación con Luis Urrea, a conversation in Spanish at El Sol Elementary School (Kalamazoo Public Schools' bilingual school); and a public presentation entitled "Cross Cultural Experiences" at Kalamazoo Central High School Auditorium later the same evening. After a brief visit to Kalamazoo Public Library the following morning, Urrea discussed his craft as a dual-culture writer from "A Writer's Perspective" in the Light Fine Arts Building at Kalamazoo College. Urrea then briefly shared for our camera his thoughts about Reading Together and his experience in Kalamazoo.
