Event Spotlight: Luis Alberto Urrea @ Lozano Branch Library

Author of our March selection, The Hummingbird's Daughter, Luis Alberto Urrea stops by the Lozano Branch Library on Thursday to discuss his works. The discussion is sponsored by the Chicago Matters: Beyond Borders program which explores the affect immigration has on political, economic and cultural life in Chicago. With his books focusing on his Mexican heritage, Urrea is a perfect speaker for the program. Free at 6:30pm at 1805 S. Loomis St. Call 312-746-4329 for more information.
