Join us for a multi-genre reading celebrating the release of I Didn't Know There Were Latinos in Wisconsin: Three Decades of Hispanic Writing. Edited by Oscar Mireles, this is the third volume in his series of anthologies celebrating the depth and breadth of Latino/a writing and literature in Wisconsin. This volume includes the work of more than thirty authors of poetry, essay, memoir, and fiction, representing an important part of the region's cultural and social fabric. Written sometimes in English, sometimes in Spanish, and sometimes in a dynamic mixture of both languages, Mireles' anthology helps to extend many narratives: not only of what it means to be Latino/a in the Midwest, but also what it means to be Midwestern.

Tentative list of readers:

  • Brenda Cardenas
  • Daisy Cubias
  • Margarita Dumit
  • Jennifer Morales
  • Oscar Mireles
  • Luana Monteiro
  • Carmen Alicia Murguia
  • Angie Trudell Vasquez
  • Tomy Tepepa
