We are proud to present, as part of the Tucson Humanities Festival and the College of Humanities at the University of Arizona, a reading by Luis Alberto Urrea. After the reading, there will be a short Q & A. 

Luis Alberto Urrea is a prolific and acclaimed author of 14 books, including poetry, essays and novels. Born in Tijuana, Mexico to a Mexican father and an Anglo mother, Urrea's work is inspired by his cross-cultural upbringing and unique perspective of life on both sides of the border.

Additional support for the 2021-2022 Reading & Lecture Series was provided by Innovations in Healthy Aging – a strategic collaboration led by the University of Arizona Health Sciences, rethinking what it means to thrive while aging.
