“a kind of literary badass who still believes in love…He is a master storyteller with a rock-and-roll heart.”
—NPR

Join Luis Alberto Urrea for an evening of intimate discourse and reflection at this digital event, rescheduled from last spring due to the shutdown.

A novelist, essayist, and poet, Urrea is the author of the landmark nonfiction work The Devil’s Highway, which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. He also wrote the novels The House of Broken Angels, Into the Beautiful North, The Hummingbird’s Daughter, and Queen of America, as well as the story collection The Water Museum, which was a PEN/Faulkner Award finalist. He is the recipient of a Lannan Literary Award, an Edgar Award, a 2017 American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature, and a 2019 Guggenheim Fellow, among other honors. Urrea currently lives outside of Chicago and teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
