This conversation is part of The Civil Conversations Project and is the culminating event of NEA Big Read in the St. Croix Valley which includes a month of activities including theater, visual arts exhibitions, film screenings and community conversations inspired by the theme of the common book.

An Evening with Luis Alberto Urrea is presented by ArtReach St. Croix, Stillwater Public Library, Stillwater Public Library Foundation, Valley Bookseller and Rivertown Inn.

Interpretación de este evento en español será ofrecido. Spanish language interpretation will be provided.
