The event creator says
When Nuestra Palabra began, we were told that Latinos did not care about literature. We were told that Latinos were not interested in writing. We were told that there was not much interest in Latino Literature. We are proud to have proven the naysayers wrong for 18 years.

Join us to celebrate the landmark of our 18th anniversary as we acknowledge all the milestones we have achieved as a community.

Tickets available at
