TCDP TOP PICK | Lowertown Reading Jam: Nuevo Mestizos

01/23/2013 - 7:00pm - 8:30pm

TCDP TOP PICK: Mestizo, explains Wikipedia, "is a term traditionally used in Spain and Latin America for people of mixed heritage or descent." On January 23 writer Louis Alemayehu, himself of mixed African and Native heritage, will be welcoming Emmanuel Ortiz and Leo Lara to the Black Dog for a Lowertown Reading Jam with the theme "Nuevo Mestizos." These are voices that deserve to be heard, and we have the Twin Cities' most diverse reading series to thank for providing this platform. - Jay Gabler
