The United States has been home to a rich and diverse Latin American, Latino and Spanish literary community throughout its history. In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, writers from all over the Americas and Spain – think José Martí (Cuba), Federico García Lorca (Spain), and Gabriela Mistral (Chile) – either spent extended periods of time in the U.S. or, like Isabel Allende (Chile), José Kozer (Cuba), and Edmundo Paz-Soldán (Bolivia), just to name a few, settled and made this country their home.

Join us and writers Ana Merino, Martín Camps, and Pablo Brescia for a discussion on the creative writing process in Spanish and a bilingual reading of their works. Click on the PDF to learn more about each of them.

This event was made possible with the support of the Department of Languages and Literatures and the International Center.
