About this Event

Join author, Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa, as she invites her readers for an intimate gathering and reading in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Daughters of the Stone. There will be special guest readers, music, and food at these festivities.

Dahlma Llanos-Figueroa was born in Puerto Rico and raised in New York City. She is a product of the Puerto Rican communities on the island and in the South Bronx. She attended the New York City public school system and received her academic degrees from SUNY at Buffalo and Queens College (CUNY). As a child she was sent to live with her grandparents in Puerto Rico where she was introduced to the culture of rural Puerto Rico, including the storytelling that came naturally to the women in her family, especially the older women. Much of her work is based on her experiences during this time. Dahlma’s short stories have appeared in anthologies and literary journals.

This event is funded in part by Poets & Writers with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the New York City Council and the Ford Foundation.
