This evening I had the pleasure, as guest curator, of introducing and listening to Richard Blanco and Erika L. Sánchez for a series that launched in 2006. That is to say: PALABRA PURA is in its seventh season! The event was held at Puerto Rican restaurant La Bruquena, in Chicago. Here are a few pics:
